Do you have a talent or skill you want to put to use, or just have some free time to share in order to build a new economy?
The Brisbane Tool Library Inc. is a key space that promotes a shared economy. In this first phase there are many different ways you can get involved and support this change with us. You can help out on a specific project or focus on a specific task. If you don’t see something interesting below, just reach out to us and we can discuss any ideas you have about how you can help.
- Specific volunteer positions required: 1) Marketing/Media Production
In order to succeed we need people to know about who we are and what we do. We need volunteers with skills and experience in marketing, photography, videography, and social media who can attend events and meetings to help us gather content for our website and social media to continue to promote the Tool Library and keep our followers up to date with what is going on.
2) Community Event Organisers/Staff
Brisbane Tool Library will put on a variety of community events revolving around the topic of sustainability and to help build support for the library. We need volunteers to help plan these events as well as to help run them. Event planning volunteers should have good communication and organisational skills, and feel comfortable working with a bit of autonomy. It would be great if you also had some experience organising community events as well. Our community event staff volunteers will be there to help with a variety of things such as set up, managing the entrance, providing information about us, and more. 3) Fundraising
Fundraising volunteers will participate in a variety of activities at different events to help raise awareness and support of the Brisbane Tool Library. These activities will include things like running stalls, handing out flyers, collection community feedback, among other things. As a fundraising volunteer you need to be outgoing, friendly, have great interpersonal skills, and be able to effectively communicate the mission and values of the Brisbane Tool Library.
4) Casual Volunteers
If you would like to help out but can’t commit to volunteering on a regular basis, do not be discouraged! There will always be times where we need a few extra hands for different things. Register as a casual volunteer, and we will notify you when we need a few extra people for different events and tasks. These will be a variety of things that we need help with, so you will be able to pick and choose to help out when you are available or if you have the necessary skills.
Please know there is a spot for you!
