ARTIST ASSISTANT TRAINING – VIDEOS
We have broken the following training videos into chapters so you can view the training in “small bites,” or, if you are a returning Artist Assistant, you can skip ahead to Chapter 1.3 to review the point-of-sale process and learn about this year’s updates.
Additionally, there are two shift-specific videos – for those helping with Friday Set-Up and those working the Sunday shifts. If you are volunteering for either of those times, please be sure to watch the appropriate video/s.
Chapter 1.3 – The Point of Sale Process (5:50) This video contains new information about changes to the receipt writing procedure. MANDATORY VIEWING FOR BOTH NEW AND RETURNING VOLUNTEER ARTIST ASSISTANTS.
Relax, re-energize, refresh in the Volunteer Hospitality Tent on the lower level – at the bottom of the steps near MOIFA and at the volunteer shuttle drop-off. Enjoy a variety of snacks and beverages, and meet volunteers from around the world!
Please note: Although we make every effort to provide a wide variety of snacks, we are not able to accommodate every dietary need or preference. If you have specific dietary requirements, we encourage you to bring what you need.
If you’re unable to get your shirt and badge prior to Market, you can pick up your items at the Volunteer Tent before your shift. We’re also happy to answer questions, register walk-in volunteers, and generally problem-solve.
If you have your shirt and badge upon arrival, you do NOT need to check in at the Volunteer Tent before your shift. Artist Assistants – please DO check in with your Block Captain.
