Our plans for our 2021 14-17 October Festival at Summerhall are shaping up nicely, but we need your help to make it a reality!
We will be hosting a three-day poetry festival brimming with poetry performances, installations and discussions in the intricate and sometimes maze-like venue of Summerhall. We are looking for volunteers to help us put up, man, and take down events at the direction of Summerhall staff; greet and direct poets and audience members around the venue; and help out our core PTBO team as needed. We welcome volunteers of every background and ability. No experience is necessary and the rota will be assigned well in advance.
Your involvement will span mostly over the weekend of the festival, but we will have an short orientation in early October to make sure we all have our ducks in a row. If you’re interested, please send us a note with a brief description of how you’d like to be involved and your availability over the course of the weekend to info@pushtheboatout.org. If you’ve already been in touch, trust that we’ve added you to our list and we’ll get back to you.

Otherwise, we look forward to hearing from you!
