Volunteer application form for Provinssi 2021 will open again next year

 

For our volunteers of the unfortunately canceled festival of 2020, Provinssi will offer an opportunity to act as an volunteer in summer 2021. Everyone who was supposed to volunteer this summer and sends an application next year, will be accepted. The official application period will start at the beginning of the year 2021 and our 2020 volunteers will have an opportunity to register beforehand. More information will follow by email at the beginning of next year. Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for understanding!

If you have any questions or thoughts regarding the situation, please contact us by email at staff@provinssi.fi.

 

 

GOOD TO KNOW

The volunteering for Provinssi will take place already for 42nd time in the beautiful area of Törnävänsaari, where volunteers are taking part in the festival’s production in diverse tasks. A sense of humor, the ability to dive into all kinds of situations and a dash of both physical and mental strength are all helpful traits when volunteering.

Volunteering takes place during the festival weekend June 25th - 28th and tasks are offered approximately 16-18 hours during the three festival days. Before and after festival volunteers can use their artistic creativity for example in the area art and visualisation tasks.

Special skills aren’t required, but feel free to tell us in the application form if you happen to have any – they might come in handy! The most important thing is that you have a good attitude and you’re ready to embrace the best experience of your summer.

VOLUNTEERING AS A MINOR

You can volunteer before you’re 18 years old as long as you’ve turned 15 before the beginning of the festival. We’d love to offer volunteer tasks to everyone who’s interested, but unfortunately we won’t be able to do so. Especially some minors will sadly be left without a volunteer spot due to the majority of them requiring being an adult by law, such as tasks with alcohol handling or those related to security. Remember to ask for your parents’ permission if you apply to volunteer as a minor!
