Join our amazing team of volunteers! 

By contributing your time and skills, you help local, East Vancouver artists, and this amazing festival, grow and thrive.

Our Crawlunteers are crucial to the operation of our organization – without them, we would not be able to deliver the festival as we do! There are many, varied opportunities to volunteer, starting with a 4 hour shift and increasing from there. Please see below for details of each volunteer opportunity. If you are interested, please fill out our SIGNUP FORM


 "I volunteer with the Crawl simply because I love the art and the creative people of my home town. I have met many amazing people, some of whom I now call friends! It is an amazing feeling being a part of something that is so big, and so uniquely East Vancouver. You’ll meet wonderful artists, supporters and folks from all over Vancouver and beyond." - Justin J.
