BurlyCon 2020 Volunteer Recruitment
“BurlyCon is a community-oriented professional growth and educational organization for burlesque performers, fans, and aficionados. We conduct educational events to preserve, promote, and advance burlesque as a theatrical art form. We offer classes, workshops, panels, and other educational offerings that further professional skill and development. We are committed to supporting personal transformation through creative artistic expression in the burlesque arts.”
This is the mission statement that unites a group of dedicated and passionate volunteers; individuals who bring their myriad experiences, talents, skill sets, and TIME to the task of building a much loved annual experience, and the organization that supports it: BurlyCon.
In 2020, BurlyCon XIII will be paying homage to the roaring 20s of the past, present, and future, and setting the stage for a new decade of art and education. We are looking for individuals with passion for burlesque, burlesque education and community, and the skills to make this year's convention the best yet.
If you are interested in participating in the creative and administrative work of BurlyCon, and have time to commit year round to making this event happen, then please fill out the brief form below.
If you are interested in participating in the 2020 BurlyCorp (Day of Event) of Volunteers, then stay tuned, we will be posting work trade opportunities in the late spring/early summer of 2020.
In either case, thank you so much for your interest in BurlyCon!
