The SEVA program is an opportunity to contribute to the event from the inside out, meet cool people, and learn how the flows behind-the-scenes in exchange for a discounted rate of $200/$225 for the access to the whole event, meals, and camping/cabin.
There are currently 9 SEVA positions available. SEVA participants will get to attend most if not all of the event! Aside from set-up and pack-up, there are only a few things that need to be done during the actual event. If we have more than 50 participants at the event, we may increase the number of SEVA positions.
General: Helps with set-up, take-down, and odd jobs throughout the event. (7 positions available)
Photographer: Helps take photos of workshops and teachers at the event and edits them. (1 position available)
Signage Artisan: Creates 3 classroom signs plus 1-3 signs to direct people to the event. Materials and supplies are provided and/or can be reimbursed. (1 position available)
SEVA participants serve for 5-6 hours total from 1pm Friday September 13th to about 3:00pm Sunday, September 15th. The breakdown of hours is about 3 hours before the event, 1-2 hours during the event and 1 hour after the event.*
*This is true with the exception of the photographer position and Signage Artisan. Photography needs will be discussed on a case-by-case basis and will be a selective process. The Signage Artisan position will create wooden signs for classrooms prior to the event. If it takes less than 5 hours, we may ask for additional assistance at the event.
