Join our team and become part of a historical moment! Become a HOST for Glimpses of Gothenburgs history
GLIMPSES OF GOTHENBURGS HISTORY
Gothenburg is turning 400 years and we want to celebrate it! The city´s birthday is celebrated on the 4th to the 6th June and we need your help in making it a nice experience!
Take part in enriching the city with arts and open up historical places to the public. Become part of a team of volunteers who will work together to make 'Glimpses of Gothenburgs history" an exciting and fun event.
The event is going to be outside and follow the up to date Covid-19 restrictions.
As a HOST you will be on site between the 4th and 6th June 2021 acting as a HOST to the public who visit. The site has 7 installations that tell 7 'glipmses of Gothenburgs history' stories. You will be asked to encourage the public to interact with the installations by scanning the QR codes next to the installations and watching the videos, and encouraging warm and welcoming conversations about the 'glimpses' so that audiences have a lovely experience.
There are 3 volunteer roles you can choose from; HOST, where you will guide the audience during the event, BACKSTAGE supporting with the rehearsals and installations in the 3 week run up to the event or MEDIA where you will tell the story of what is happening. We aim for this to be an enjoyable experience, giving back to your city on the day of its jubilee. Feel free to read about the different roles here at Volontärbyrån.
You will be in Gothenburg's Västra Nordstan historic quarter based out of Kronhuset, volunteering together with other people enjoying arts and history.
