OH MATRON!!! …Our ‘FRINGE’ Antidote To Successful Festivaling
Each September sees a rampant outbreak of individuals or clusters of bodies who don t-shirts and voluntarily run about the city directing the public and strangers alike to immersive themselves the epidemic now called FRINGE – this strain of binge ‘Festivaling’ is whole heartedly encouraged
Our Volunteer aides and nurses are well into becoming a National Institution like The Red Cross itself – their passion and spirit are as infectious and fresh to first time performers, artists, producers and writers as when it first started back 1990’s– with their selfless commitment lending itself to the festival to showcase the best in new Irish talent and inviting over the most innovative and creative International Acts that The Arts Scene has to offer. #SharingIsCaring
FRINGE Benefits: Clinical trials have shown that positive lasting outcomes may include prescribed parties to heal our fight-fatigued souls and soothe us with filthy laughs, distil rage and brew art from the inexpressible. Volunteering and FRINGE combined is the adrenaline of chance, limitless euphoria and ‘joy as the act of resistance’.
FRINGE Side Effects: long exposure to such euphoric events and revelations may lead one to becoming, as our Chief In Residence has noted, ‘ a dreamer and doer, wordsmith and radical, crafters, grafters, pirates and bad bitches’. These outwardly signs of artistic emotion and inclusion are not to be frowned upon but nurtured so they can step in and carry on the legacy. Volunteering is not a disease – it is advantageous addiction that stokes the artist in all of us.
Along with these symptoms and side effects to come , why not volunteer with us, we have positions as interns, supervisors, Front of House & Ticketing Volunteers, Admin & Production as well as Outdoor Marshalls & Street Team vacancies.
So why not take a chance and volunteer – you never know it could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship with the Performing Arts in Dublin –#OurFRINGEBrigade
