Without volunteers there is no Kiwiburn! Thank you to those who give their time and energy to making Kiwiburn happen for all of us. As well as seeing people enjoy the festival you helped create, you will work with an amazing group of people in our community from all over New Zealand; learn a wide range of skills which you can apply to life in the default world; and gain insight and experience volunteering on a unique (non-commercial) festival, working alongside our long-standing volunteers.

We are aways interested in Kiwiburners willing to take on one-off type project-based tasks eg surveys, research etc. The Finance Team is looking for 2-3 people with bookkeeping and/or accounting experience to help out with year-round finance tasks, and the Admin Team will be seeking a new insurance coordinator very soon.
