OrcaJam 2019 Volunteering
Are you interested in volunteering at OrcaJam 2019 October 25th - 27th at 777 Fort St? We'd love to have your help! If you're participating in the game jam we'll cover your registration fee. You'll also get a free t-shirt, food and you get to be part of the team that is making OrcaJam happen! Of course you'll also have our sincere gratitude, so sign up below and let us know you want to help out!
Volunteering for a game jam is really simple. You main duty is to sit up front and keep an eye on the doors. We can't let people in unless they have an official gamejam namebadge because there are a bunch of other offices in the building and nobody wants their equipment taking a walk.
Your other duties include such grueling chores as making coffee, helping set up for meals (making room on the tables for the latest meal, carrying in the food), and tidying up (the more we do throughout the jam, the less we have to clean up at the end). That's pretty much it. You can absolutely participate in the jam and volunteer.
Occasionally people will wander in off the street and ask what's going on, what ViaTec is, or whether the coffee shop is open. The very short explanation of ViaTec is they're a non-profit that helps grow and promote the tech sector in Victoria and donated the space we hold game jams in. It should be obvious pretty quickly whether the coffee shop is open :)
I will be contacting the volunteers soon with more info about the schedule, but for now please just let me know that you are interested, thanks!
