Volunteers wanted for the Nara Festival in October

The ACT Government is seeking interested volunteers to assist with the delivery of the 2011 Canberra Nara Candle Festival taking place on Saturday 22 October.

The Canberra Nara Candle Festival is an annual celebration of the Canberra Nara Sister City relationship.  The Festival embraces the values of friendship and goodwill between our two countries through a diverse program of performance, cultural activities, displays and cuisine.

The centrepiece of the Festival is a stunning display of 2,000 candles in our very own Japanese Garden. The Canberra Nara Candle Festival is being coordinated by the ACT Government, with the support of the Embassy of Japan and many community groups.

How can I get involved?
This is primarily a community festival, which relies on substantial voluntary support from both groups and individuals. We are inviting members of the general public to participate in the events for which there are a variety of tasks and roles.

You must be over the age of eighteen (18) to be eligible to volunteer.
Volunteers over the age of 18 will be insured by the ACT Government.

Pre-Event Briefing
A pre-event briefing session will be held on Wednesday 6 October 2011 at 4.30pm at Canberra Nara Peace Park, allowing the opportunity for questions to be answered and meet fellow staff and volunteers.
