Apply for this Role

We need 2 to 3 leads to help to manage our combination volunteer-contractor crew in setting up the festival early on Friday night and again early Saturday morning.  We set up several crews of 2 to 4 people whose job is to set up tents, tables, chairs, and tent weights as quickly as possible.  They also set up signs and barriers.  We need leads who can help to oversee these crews.

Strictly speaking, the lead does not need to engage in a lot of heavy lifting.  Their chief job is to make sure that things are getting set up in the right place and in the right order.  Organizational skills under time pressure are most important.  An ability to lend a hand is a big plus.

Time Commitment: 1-2 meetings ahead of festival; Friday Night (5-9) and Saturday morning (6-10).


We will provide all of the instructions and schematics. Your role is to serve as the central point of

  • Serve as the central point of coordination to work crews.
  • As able, lend a hand to the work (e.g., setting up banners and tents)


Ideally, we will have 1-2 leads each on Friday night, Saturday morning, and Saturday night.

  • Before Festival: 2-3 hours to review plans and maps.
  • Friday: 4:00 - 10:00 pm - Be onsite to form, direct, and assist crews.
  • Saturday: 6:00 am to 11 am:  Be on site to form, direct, and assist crews.
  • Saturday Night: 6:00 pm to midnight.

What You Need

  • While heavy lifting is not a requirement for this role, it is useful if you are able to lend a hand as needed with hand trucks, tables, and tents.
  • This role is all about directing crews to move things to staging areas and then to move them from staging areas to where they are needed and setting them up.


  • You are directing fresh recruits to build a tiny city in a few hours - and then to return it to nature.
  • Recognition as a community leader for the festival.
  • Lots of walking!
  • If you don't care for the night-time party scene, this provides a great excuse

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
