About Author:

I have been volunteering at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival for 25 years. I used to volunteer on different committees, because I liked trying different things and meeting different people every year.

About 5+ years ago I got on with the Main stage crew and enjoyed the people and the comrade so much that I stayed there until 2007.

In 2008, I moved on to start the Volunteer stories committee, to give Volunteers a way to share their stories and build a History of VFMF Volunteers. I quickly realised that everyone has a stories and so we started interviewing and collecting stories, photos, audio, and video for Festival Stories.

Volunteer stories after year two

A roller coaster ride of events as the Volunteer stories grew into a Committee this year. Who knew a few weeks ago that the seed of my idea would find renewed energy in the inspiring faces of 7 Committee volunteers. It was both challenging and enlightening to both guide and learn from the ‘team’. Everyone had their own areas of expertise and interest, which resulted in interviews on an iphone, on a professionalvideo camera, written interviews done by hand, and hand held mics collaborating with a digital camera.
