Reach for the skyranMOON!

Adult volunteers are needed for the skyranMOON exhibition at Stromness Academy from September 6th – 16th.

Stromness Academy is hosting ‘Museum of the Moon’, a major artwork seen by more than 1 million people around the world. To celebrate 2018 as the Year of Young People, students from the Academy, and Kirkwall, are being given Worldhost customer service training and will act as guides and invigilators at the MOON, lead Solar System walks through Stromness, show visitors around the exhibition and chat with them about space.

The organisers of the skyranMOON exhibition are looking for responsible adult volunteers who can play a supportive role for the students at the exhibition, as well as helping with answering questions from visitors, helping out with the sale of raffle and events tickets and doing a stint on the refreshments stall.

The exhibition will run from 4pm – 10pm weekdays and 10am – 7pm at weekends.

Volunteers are asked to do a 3 hour volunteering slot (refreshments will be provided!) and each shift will have two adult volunteers and 4 young people (17/18 years old). Adult volunteers will be able to cover as many shifts as they want.

A group information and training session will be held at Stromness Academy on Wednesday 5 September 6 - 7pm. If volunteers are unable to make this briefing a second session will run Saturday 8 September 9 – 10am .

Both Saturdays 10am - 3pm will include family events. A reception for all volunteers and supporters will take place at skyranMOON on 14th September at 7pm.

If you are interested in volunteering at a truly unique, once in a lifetime event in Orkney, please contact Rob McGregor at VAO on 872 897.

Both Saturdays 10am-3pm will include family events. A reception for all volunteers and supporters will take place at skyranMOON on 14th September at 7pm.
