The first ever COWfest (Children of Winchester Festival) is planned for the weekend of 13th and 14th February 2016, at the Tower Arts Centre at Kings' School.
The aim of COWfest is to showcase local talent and bring new audiences to Winchester's youth arts providers, and to give children a chance to have a go at different creative activities through workshops. We also hope for local young people to be involved in planning and marketing the festival. We are starting small in 2016, but our aim is to develop the festival over the coming years and to make it a regular feature of Winchester's festival calendar.
For COWfest 2016, young people aged 14+ are invited to volunteer in the following areas: logo design, flyer design, festival programme writing and layout, arrangement of art works in the COWfest gallery, 'front of house' roles (e.g. decorating the venue, selling tickets and refreshments, ushering participants, supporting workshop providers and performers, etc) and stage management roles.
Please complete this short application form as soon as you can, in order to join our team of volunteers for COWfest 2016. Thank you!
We will then contact you by email (copied to your parent/guardian) with further information about volunteering at COWfest. Please note that planning sessions will be held every Tuesday at Kings' School from 3.30 to 5pm, through to 9th February inclusive, and it will be helpful for volunteers to attend these.
