Antigua and Barbuda rolls out volunteer program for 15th CARIFESTA
The CARIFESTA XV Secretariat yesterday announced that plans are underway to roll out the volunteer program ahead of CARIFESTA XV which will be held August 2022 in Antigua and Barbuda.
The Caribbean Festival of Arts, CARIFESTA, is the Caribbean Community’s (CARICOM) multi-disciplinary roving art and culture festival. In 2022, Antigua and Barbuda will host this event, which will attract over 2,500 delegates from CARICOM and non-CARICOM territories of the Caribbean, Latin America and the diaspora.
Under the theme, “One Caribbean. One Environment. Diverse Cultures”, this is the first time our twin island state will host this prestigious cultural showcase and we eagerly look forward to it being a great success.
The success of the event, however, is heavily dependent on a highly efficient and professional volunteer corps.
As such, a call is being made to all citizens and residents 16 years and over to sign up and become a volunteer for the Caribbean’s largest multicultural festival.
The CARIFESTA XV Secretariat is seeking individuals who consider themselves to be dynamic, helpful, polite and personable.
The specific volunteer areas include, but are not limited to, VIP/Protocol, Hospitality, Media, Administrative, Delegation Liaison, Technical, and Meet and Greet.
Applications officially open on Monday 21st June, and the process is quite simple. Application forms are available at the CARIFESTA XV Secretariat on Old Parham Road (upstairs KFC/INET); email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting an application form; or simply visit the CARIFESTA website www.carifesta.net to complete the application online.
Visit the CARIFESTA Secretariat, or call 562-9605/06, for more information.
