Volunteering at AfrikaBurn is superb fun! It engages you on levels that you would never have thought possible - and it helps the event tremendously.
To volunteer at the event, head over to the Participation Station volunteer booth at Off-Centre Camp and sign up.
We always need help, and you’ll be warmly welcomed, even as a first-time burner. Volunteering is fun, you meet new people and learn so much!
Here’s a list of the many ways you can volunteer, you can even volunteer for more than one:
Chillaz - Our Off Centre Camp stage is looking for 'Stage Hands' during event week, to help keep the space shipshape and MOOP free, to field queries from and book slots for those who wish to grace the stage and offer a helping hand to the star performers. No technical knowledge required. Please sign up and join the Fun.
