We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers ready to assist in areas where help is most needed. In return for useful periods of your time, discounts are available for selected Head On workshops and talks, including the portfolio review session, as well as entry to the event you are donating time to.

  •  Help manage the Portfolio Review Session by taking registrations, welcoming people, checking payments, assisting reviewers and generally ensuring the day runs smoothly. Date: Monday 20 May 10:00-16:00, Library Seminar Rooms, TAFE.
