Be a Volunteer

Be part of New Zealand’s first featured Maker Faire, right here in Wellington. It’s going to be an incredible, big day, full of inspiring curiosity, and hands-on making goodness.

Volunteer opportunities will range from assisting Makers create their set up prior to the event, and packing it down at the conclusion, giving Makers breaks throughout the event, assisting with traffic management, being a point of information for event attendees or honing your stage management skills.

What do I get from volunteering for Maker Faire Wellington ?

Maker Faire Wellington will be fun! But also, you’ll get to meet and work alongside some of New Zealand’s most exciting makers and creators and see their creations and process up-close. You’ll get to interact with the public, helping them engage with the various installations and activities. And of course, you’ll be an integral part of New Zealand’s first Maker Faire. You’ll also be invited to the Maker Muster networking event, and on the big day will receive discounts from food trucks onsite!

When will I be needed?

All shifts will be between 11am – 6pm on Saturday 3 November, and 7am – 9pm on Sunday 4 November. Let us know when works for you as you won’t be required for all these times. Even if you’re only available for a few hours, we’d love to hear from you!
