Come Volunteer with the Vancouver Fringe Festival!

Volunteering for the Fringe is a great way to meet new people, get work experience, practice your English language skills, and see a hell of a lot of free theatre—and get that warm feeling you get from being needed. The Fringe Festival is on Granville Island, and happens between Sept. 10-20, 2015.


The volunteer positions we have range from selling tickets and pouring drinks to counting money and being part of our production crew. If feeling warm isn’t enough, volunteers also get a free t-shirt, snacks in the Volunteer Centre, an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party (where there are performances from Fringe artists), and a Volunteer Rush Pass, which lets you into any show that’s not already sold out!


This year the Fringe is working with local interpreters as well as Douglas College’s Interpreting program to set up free interpreting services for Deaf/Hard of Hearing volunteers during the Festival. We will also have some ASL-interpreted shows this year, as well as a number of non-English, visual shows that are accessible to Deaf/Hard of Hearing audiences. Volunteers will get a festival pass that lets them see shows for free as a thank you from the Fringe Festival team.


If you want to volunteer, fill out our online application form at:https://app.volunteer2.com/Public/SignUp?organizationGUID=8c926450-0275-4038-a2e4-c341581a841e&signupFormId=1


We can’t wait to have you on the team! If you have any questions, please email Katt Campbell at: volunteerassistant@vancouverfringe.com

Internship/Volunteer Opportunities


Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Donatas Pocesiunas. I am a deaf architect and city planner and graphic designer from Lithuania. I received a Bachelor Degree in Architecture from Vilnius Arts Academy in Vilnius, Lithuania in 2011. During my four-year enrollment at Vilnius, I participated in student exchange program called Erasmus, during which I took courses at Bremen University, Germany in 2010. My previous architecture experience includes stints at the Vilnius Architecture Studio (Lithuania), the architecture company “Forma” (Lithuania) and Gallaudet University (the USA). I have three years in professional experience.

I have worked with a team of architects, researchers and designers to establish the first World Deaf Architecture (WDA) Conference. In the month of May, the conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia located in United States.

Having said that, the purpose of this letter is to inquire information about internship/volunteer opportunities in your city, Vancouver.

Thank you for your time in this matter. I trust you will respond in the near future.

Room and Board

Hi everyone!
My name is Jamie Munro. I am a Deaf woman and I will graduate this year from George Elliot Secondary School in Lake Country
near Kelowna.
In fall of 2014, I will be going to Vancouver Community College for two years. For the first year I will take English Upgrading of
Deaf and Hard- Hearing program and then I will take the Culinary Arts program because I want to become a chef.
I am looking for a room and board situation with a family who knows ASL. A Deaf family would be great if possible. I will be
using the public transit system so am looking for a home close to bus or skytrain routes.
Please contact me at: eaglegirlj@hotmail.com. (that is newspaper from Family Network of Deaf children.)
