Aftermath is a participant-created event run by volunteers. It won't happen without you. We need your participation! Here's where you find out all about all the different ways to bring *you* to Aftermath.

VOLUNTEERING

DPW

Die Departement van Publieke Werke (department of public works) is all about the dirty work. From erecting massive structures, digging trenches, demarcating danger zones to scrubbing toilets and carefully curating fairy light placement, DPW does it all. So if you like being hands-on and appreciate all the love that goes into manual labour, DPW is for you.

A special note from our Sheriff:

Department of Pubelink Wormks iz not your average bunch of misfit!
It iz our average bunch of Misfit.
However, more fit iz needed than miss, and a nice fitting miss is welcome too.
Clearink the kak, linkink electrics, pitching of tent, puttink signage, Bollie Patrollie and Make Pretty.

Come for holiday at Gulagh.

DPW will be needing extra hands before, during and after the event, so if you'd like to get your hands dirty, mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

LNT

Leave No Trash is dedicated to making sure our event is 100% zero waste. This is so important to us, that LNT has it's own dedicated page.  Please read more here

GATE CAMP (Die Portaal)

Greeters: Are you a reeally good Hype person? The initiator of your friends going out for that "one" drink? The greeters are the very first thing any one joining Aftermath see. We have to bring the "gees." Like really hard. You have to greet them so hard that the rest of the weekend seems kind of like a let down ( it obviously won't, but that's the vibe that we bounce.)

Gate fairies: Praise be to the gate Fairies. These people are the ones making sure your shit is together. We need some friendly, fantastic people who do not shy away from a spreadsheet, admin, ticketing, directing to camps. If your'e good at admin, you're in high demand. Give us loskop artist hippies a hand pretty please?  Please mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

SHEBEEN: All your booze. Bring it. Drink it.
Bring any second hand clothes to be included in an artwork for swapsies, tradesies and to be donated after the event to a community near you!

Set up a THEME or OPEN CAMP!

A Theme Camp is open and accessible to all participants who will delight in whatever you are offering – be it a chilled spot with a library and a cuppa; an inspiring space to set free the artist in you; a dance floor with some groovy tunes to bop to; a pot of something delicious to share; or a hug and a tequila!

An Open Camp does not necessarily have a theme or specific gifting, but welcomes participants in for a visit or a chat. We are introducing Open Camps as a means for our small, tight-knit community to have an opportunity to get to know each other even better.

Whatever it is, this is your opportunity to SHINE – make your camp colourful, welcoming, comfy – and remember great signage and good lighting at night goes a looong way. Keep in mind, the weather can swing from super hot, to rainy to windy and make allowances.
