We are stoked you're interested in taking part in BREATHE 2023 as a member of the Rigging & Activities Volunteer Team!
Over the course of three days prior to the festival and throughout, the Rigging and Activities Team will serve as a critical resource for partner slackline clubs and festival organizers to rig hundreds of slacklines, midlines, nets, art and other installations.
Parameters & Requirements
The parameters for this volunteer opportunity at Breathe are somewhat unique as the bulk of our work as a team will be completed prior to Festival-start. Here are the requirements to consider before applying:
Arrive at Stable Studios, check in, setup camp, and be prepared to start working no later than 9am Tuesday, July 11th. You may arrive at Stable Studios any time after (but NOT BEFORE) 12pm Monday, July 10th.
Once you have arrived at Stable Studios, be prepared to work 10+ hour days each day prior to Festival-start on Thursday, July 13th. This work will encompass the entire spectrum of slackline, net, and other installation rigging….plus a whole lot more. Once our work as team is nearing completion, each member of the rigging team will be expected to work on other Festival-setup tasks as needed.
Once the Festival begins...Enjoy! While work activities will be significantly reduced during the Festival, it will be the responsibility of the Rigging Team to maintain a schedule of routine rigging inspections and maintenance, monitor midline areas to perform rescue if needed, and administer various rigging-related Festival activities including the Slackline Olympics.
Festival takedown takes place Monday, July 17th and, while not explicitly required, Rigging Team members are highly encouraged to camp Sunday night at Stable Studios after the Festival concludes and help take down Monday.
