There are three parts to any Global Village which require different skills and gifts. Ideally we would have the same people throughout the experience however, we know not everyone can give that much time and therefore it is easier to split it up:
Setup: 14th - 20th July
The setup phase is where we build the Global Village set, and so requires people that are good with their hands. For example electricians, painters, Carpenters, experienced DIYers, and General (fit and able) Labourers.
Live Run: (Keswick Convention Week 2) 21st July - 27th July, (Keswick Convention Week 3) 28th July - 3rd August
During the live run we require people who enjoy acting (you do not need to be an accomplished actor, however, we need people who are comfortable being in character whilst interacting with participants without a script.) We also need make-up artists, IT Support, reception staff, group de-briefers (this is not counselling, more drawing out the journey the participants have been on), and people who have a heart to serve and can fill roles behind the scenes as and when they come up such as stewarding.
Packdown: 3rd - 4th August
The final stage is packing everything back down; it is mostly able bodied general labourers that are needed to take all the sets and panels down and load the lorry.
