This form is for prospective workshop leaders of any discipline, new and old, wanting to offer workshops at the Buddhafield Festival 2021.
Please note that our license application may depend on us distancing and wearing masks inside structures, so please consider how this might impact your workshops and only apply if you can work with this; there's always next year if that's not possible.
The Workshops Coordinators may forward any applications made here to the Area Coordinators of other areas (such as Land & Social Change, Green Crafts, or the Kids Area). If you know that your workshop proposal would better fit another category, then please apply to the relevant area directly - the other area may have different questions and to be considered there you might be asked to complete a second form (if the questions are different).
#### 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.
