 Seechange 2016


The SeeChange 2016 Jervis Bay Arts Festival, hosted by Jervis Bay and Basin Arts Inc. Hosted bi-annually since 2000. This year’s festival will be the 9th SeeChange Festival.

The festival has grown each year and now runs for 24 days over 4 weekends, it is a fantastic celebration of the arts in Jervis Bay and the local Shoalhaven Bay and Basin area, and one of the most popular community events on the local calendar .  As you’ll see on this web-site, in 2016 there is a vibrant and diverse programme of more than 100 events. Each weekend has a different theme. From visual arts, photography, music, performance, literary and special community events, taking place in galleries, cafes, studios, parks, homes and gardens, all set against the beautiful backdrop of Jervis Bay. Special guests have been invited to expand the diversity of art and performance.

The theme of the 2016 Festival is Illuminate.

With support for this year’s festival from artists, volunteers,  Shoalhaven Council and Art’s board, JBMM, businesses and sponsors, we have been able to organise a festival that we are sure the community and visitors to Jervis Bay will be more than impressed with.

Jervis Bay and Basin Art’s Inc. extend their gratitude to ALL  it’s supporters and hope the whole community will come out, enjoy SeeChange 2016.

Volunteers

The SeeChange Festival requires volunteers to help in a range of ways. Leading up to the festival we need help with the distribution of programs and publicity material, putting up signs and banners, collecting raffle prizes and selling tickets and fund raising generally. During the festival we need help with building props and transporting equipment, this can reduce the festival budget considerably. Volunteers with IT, media, publicity and advertising experience can be a great help, the list goes on.
Volunteers just willing to lend a hand at one event through to being on the festival committee and taking on a specific role are all needed. It can be hard work but it is rewarding and a lot of fun.

If you would like to join the team of volunteers and help in any way please contact seechangefestival@jervisbayarts.asn.au. please write Volunteering in the subject line. It would help if you specify the things you’d like particularly to help with or perhaps things you can’t do, like heavy lifting. A committee member will contact you and discuss options.

Here is a list of responsibilities volunteers are needed for:

 

 distributing programs, publicity postcards and flyers

 selling raffle tickets and help in other fund raising activities

 help set up/pack up at public events

 supervising the art exhibitions during the festival

 helping with the bar/refreshments at festival events (must have RSA)

 making/repairing lanterns for parades

 have transport and are able to deliver heavy equipment to events

 help with publicity responsibilities such announcements on radio, writing press releases

 helping to build props for special events

 certain administrative jobs such as letter writing, proof reading, and statistical analysis

 first aid assistance at public events (first aid certificate required)

 

If you would like to be a SeeChange Volunteer email seechangefestival@jervisbayarts.asn.au Please write Volunteering in the subject line.
