Looking for Ass Prod for Dustcovery

GVIAS has worked hard to develop a pool of strong leaders and event planners, to ensure that the same people aren’t organizing and running multiple events, then burning out, leaving and taking all the knowledge with them.

Dustcovery is an exciting event to produce and we are looking for an Associate Producer who would like to participate in planning the event from start to finish. This is a great opportunity to receive mentorship and add some skills to your toolbox and resume!

Andi Candi has produced Dustcovery for the past 3 years and will be the producer for Dustcovery 2018. She has also served on the Burn in the Forest production team for 2 years. In her default-world life, she produces large scale community events, including parades and large festivals for hundreds of thousands of people. She is willing to provide mentorship and involve the associate producer in the entire event planning process including:

– Venue bookings and contracts
– Supplier bookings (security, tents, fencing, etc.)
– Team Lead recruitment and management
– Chairing planning meetings (creating agendas, running meetings)
– Liaising with Film and Special Events office, Police and Fire
– Submitting event permits and liquor license applications
– Production schedule
– Recruitment of art projects and theme camps
– Volunteer management
– Budget management
– Post production activities

If you like organizing, enjoy managing people and have some experience planning events (even if they are small!), please consider applying. You will need to be able to commit to 2-5 hours per week from May – September and then ramp up to 7-10 hours per week closer to the event in October.

Please use this form to apply:

Please feel free to contact Andi Candi at andrea.arnot@gmail.com if you have questions.

Recharge: Art Applicants

ReCharge was a great success this year! Artists from the community brought their ideas, sketches and models to the event for inspiration, encouragement and support – and attendees provided funding to help bring their visions to life for both regional and Burning Man events. Attendance was slightly higher than last year, and $7,716.12 was raised by our community for our artists ($428 per artist)! Thank you to the Production Team for all of your hard work running the event!

Cheers,
GVIAS Board: Brodie, Ryan, Jenn, Sarah, Jennie, Monica, Adrian and Tyler.
