We need your help! Everything at Nowhere is run by volunteers – this means: YOU!

YOU CAN BE INVOLVED IN DIFFERENT TIMES:

SET-up & strike

During the set-up (pre-event operations such as build, production, power, city planning, etc): We raise a city from the ground up. Harsh conditions, intense labour and work hours. It is extremely rewarding, you’ll create in few days connections that will be stronger than any others. When everyone on site works their ass of towards one goal: this weird Utopia called Nowhere.

During strike : We’ve had our fun, but it’s also time to stick to our principles. We strike all structures, clean and chase down every last piece of moop until there is nothing besides a blank canvas.

during the year

We also have some other roles available to help plan and produce Nowhere. If you would like to get more involved that way then one of the roles below might be perfect for you. Take a look at the list below to see what we need right now and contact the associated email address.

  • Strike Leave No Trace Co LeadThe purpose of this role is to oversee a team of volunteers who together ensure that once event has finished there really is No Trace. Either organising line sweeping for MooP (matter out of place) or teaching volunteers how to assist people using the W&R (Waste and Recycling Zone) there are many ways to ensure the field is restored to its original state. It will require somebody who is available to stay until the end of strike for up to 10 days.lnt@goingnowhere.org
