The Ultimate Pop-Up Junkyard Playground
We are looking for volunteers to help us run the Ultimate Pop Up Junkyard Playground. A child-led participatory public art project

What is on offer?

The Ultimate Pop Up Junkyard is large scale public art project that invites young artists 6-16yrs of age to collaborate on the design and installation of their ideal village over two days at the Cloverdale Community Centre, Corio, Geelong.

We are looking for volunteers to assist our team of professional artists, architects and designers in helping our young collaborators bring their designs to life.  Your role would be to help our young artists when required, help keep them safe and encourage their creativity.  They will be using saws, hammers and cordless drills, recycled building materials and other odds and ends.  Before they enter the site they will be shown how to use tools safely and our role is to them do so, without taking over.

Dates:  9th and 10th November
Shifts are for 3hrs + induction. Lunch provided.

Ideally you have an interest in public/socially engaged art with an emphasis on working with young artists.  You must be 18rys + and have a current working with children check (volunteer one is fine) or able to obtain one.  We will provide all the support you need, including onsite induction, regular breaks and lunch.
