There is a lot of work behind each and every forró event we organise and volunteers are crucial! Sell tickets at a party, host musicians, make food for guest teachers, collect people from the airport… the list is endless.
And if you have any secret skills or talents that you think would be useful for things we haven’t even thought of yet, please let us know!📣🤓
➡️ Join the organising team!
We are looking to add one more member to the core organising team. This means joining our monthly meetings and contributing in a more in-depth way to the efficient running of the association & the success of the Forró Brussels community!
If you are interested, send us a one-page motivation letter or a 2-3 minute video to BY THURS 27th SEPT explaining: 1) why you would like to join us & 2) what skills you would bring to the team!
