Spoken Word and Walkabout — Festival Contributors

Are you a Poet, Storyteller, Walkabout act or Cabaret Artist? ...Word Up! is the Buddhafield venue that models authentic self-expression and honours Oral Traditions. We like to make people laugh and model upbeat truth-telling with plenty of participation.

We are always looking for keen Buddhafielders who have a show or a piece to contribute, so tell us more about what you can offer… Unfortunately there are limited tickets available; so we are more likely to favour acts who maximise stage time with fewer performers or +1s, or those who have a selection of acts, workshops or offerings. Thank you for your desire to contribute, and the generosity of offering your work.

We take care to craft a quality programme, themed through the larger context, so applications don't always guarantee selection. Please try again next year if you are not selected!

#### Message about 2021 Festival Volunteering

Buddhafield is working closely with the local licensing authority to make sure our two events, Buddhafield Festival and Buddhafield Weekender, can go ahead safely. We expect that certain restrictions will be in place in order for these events to go ahead.

Before you apply for a volunteering position, we ask that you consider whether you will be comfortable following whatever restrictions are in place as per current government guidelines at the time of the events. This could include, but is not limited to, extra handwashing, social distancing, face masks, no snack provision and extra rules around mealtimes etc.

If you will find this difficult then this year might not be the year for you and we look forward to having you back as a volunteer when we no longer need to follow these restrictions.

#### A Word about Alcohol and Drugs

Please have a think about our view on alcohol and recreational drugs, as described on the Festival overview page.

We don’t wish to judge people’s views on this — and hope it won’t put you off applying! And if this would be a new way of experiencing a festival for you then why not give it a try?! However please bear in mind that if you choose to work with us and are accepted, then we’d expect this policy to be respected.
