Lead tutor is a freelance paid role, with the exact reimbursement varying per festival as followsWarwick: £100 plus a festival ticketSidmouth: £100 plus a festival ticket plus travel expenses up to £50
If you would like to lead at one festival but core at another there is an option to tick 'Lead' or 'Core' for all festivals. If you would be happy to core if you are not selected as a lead you can indicate this by ticking both boxes. Core tutors are volunteers who get a festival ticket and travel expenses (up to £50).
We want you to be able to enjoy the festival as well as contributing to Shooting Roots, so no tutor will be booked for more than one workshop at the same festival, whether they are a lead, core or trainee.
For more information about what is involved in leading a Shooting Roots workshop take a look at the descriptions on our website by following this link: http://shootingroots.org/about/tutorscheme/
You will also find more information about what is happening at each festival in the Provisional Tutor Festival Info document here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13_pPiX5QS2uX7XoFr9ow1Up_qhuFGhBpDBtBhx24kpk/edit?usp=sharing
Please fill this form in ASAP, but definitely before MIDNIGHT ON 28th APRIL 2019. We will aim to send out emails with our confirmed tutor teams within the first two weeks of May.
**IMPORTANT** Although we try our best to get as many people involved as possible, we may not be able to offer tutor places to everyone who applies. This is especially the case this year as we will only be at two festivals, and we expect to receive more applications than the number of tutors we can have. Please don’t let this put you off applying, because there are many things we take into account, but do bear in mind that just because you apply doesn’t mean you are guaranteed a tutor ticket, even if you have tutored with us before. It is always a very difficult decision, but we need to try to get the right balance between experienced tutors and new generations of tutors, mixes of instruments/dance styles etc and more, and we sadly can’t always take everyone we want to! :( If we can’t offer you a place this year, please do apply again next year though, we still love you!
The dates given are the dates you need to be there for Shooting Roots activities, not the entire festival. The Friday of Warwick and the Saturday of Sidmouth include a compulsory festival briefing, even if there are no workshops that day.
Food and indoor camping accommodation will be provided. If the cost of travel is an issue, please let us know, as we may be able to provide travel bursaries.
