Mountain to Mouth and Geelong After Dark 2018 Volunteers Wanted

Come volunteer and get your hands in the Earth and your feet on the ground together as the Mountain to Mouth and Geelong After Dark worlds collide on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th May 2018!

Mountain to Mouth (M~M) is Geelong’s multi-award winning extreme arts walk – an 80 kilometre biennial journey of discovery over two days. M~M 2018 will be held 4-5 May.

M~M begins at the You Yangs mountain range, crosses Geelong’s industrial heartland at nightfall and arrives in the city centre to collide with Geelong After Dark, a night of extreme and unexpected arts.

In the tradition of Wadawurrung traditional owners, M~M creates a contemporary songline across the Geelong and Queenscliffe regions. Artworks installed in Walking Circle landmarks feature at the 12 Songline Stations along the way.

You will be needed on or before 4-5 May 2018.  We are looking for volunteers to perform the following roles:

  • WALKER MONITORS – To help M~M walkers stay safe and on the path.
  • WALKING CIRCLE VOLUNTEERS – To assist District Co-ordinators with the arrival and departure of Canoe and Flags, also helping escorting people in and around the Walking Circles
  • STATION VOLUNTEERS – To assist in setting up and packing up the sites.
  • SHUTTLE BUS DRIVERS – To drive M~M walkers between Songline Stations.
  • ART-MAKING VOLUNTEERS – Various tasks determined by nature of artworks and in consultation with District Coordinators/Artists.
