VOLUNTEERING – Contact email@example.com
An event of mOOseman’s magnitude needs many hands and minds to come together to be a success. Given the scale of this year’s event, it is critical that all pARTicipants volunteer to assist in some capacity to make the event a success.
We’re all volunteers so why not join the fun of working to make the event happen?
Interested in volunteering but don’t know where? We are looking for all sorts of volunteers to help us make this the best mOOseman ever and pARTicipation is extra important now with the growth of mOOseman and other regional events due to the Burning Man ticket scarcity problem.
We expect higher demand to attend this year, so community volunteer participation will be very important. When you buy your ticket, we’ll be asking for some info from you on how you think you can help. In June and July we’ll contact you to schedule shifts and put you in touch with the right team leads. If you want to get a head start contact Cory at firstname.lastname@example.org

musical textures to facilitate and support your experience.

as well as stealing liberally from dance and groove music of all styles.
The purpose of the Starfires Groove Centre will be to make each day a little
bit brighter. And also, to get the funk out!
