CBE Photographers take pictures throughout the event which in turn are shared with the community via social media and the DenverBurners.org website. As with other burner events, our photogs receive consent training prior to the event. They not only ask for consent to take pictures, but look for "No Photos" wristbands on participants/artist's wrists.
Please choose a Photo shift from the following drop down menu.
As with CBE Photographers, CBE Videographers record video clips of the event, then share with the community after editing. Some will event add music to their final piece. They also, as with photographers, will ask for consent before filming and look for "No Photos" wristbands on participant/artist's wrists.
Please choose a Video shift from the following drop down menu.
Gate Volunteers are some of the first volunteers to welcome participants, artists, performers, and other volunteers. They have various duties: help check IDs, take tickets as necessary, keep a vigilant eye on/guard the door/fence and perimeter, and help other departments as necessary.
Please choose a Gate shift from the following drop down menu.
Safety Third are, at the very minimum, CPR-Certified volunteers who help any participants or volunteers needing a safety check. They remain sober during their shift so they can provide any necessary first aid. They could be nurses, fire fighters, doctors, or CPR-Certified volunteers. Our Safety Third Team are happy to help!
If you are interested in volunteering for the Safety Third team, select the choice below and our team leads will contact you for certification confirmation and specific shift placement.
LNT (aka Leave No Trace) is very important to CBE. Our LNT Team scours inside and outside the venue searching for any MooP (aka Matter Out Of Place). The team will work before, during , and after the event to ensure no MooP is left behind. Please choose an LNT shift from the following drop down menu.
Who doesn't like gifts, especially when you volunteer? The Gifting Team helps distribute swag to all volunteers. They will be around not only during CBE, but also at the Volunteer Appreciation Party. Please choose a Gifting shift from the following drop down menu.
We wish we could have a genie who could blink her eyes and *POOF* CBE is set up and torn down. But alas...we don't. We DO have some amazing volunteers who help set up prior to the event and tear down afterwards. If you'd like to join this team, please choose a Setup/Teardown shift from the following drop down menu.
Decor, along with the Set-up/Tear-Down Team, transforms the CBE venue into an amazing space. The team frames the beautiful art, people, and performers by adding theme-specific decor. Please choose a Decor shift from the following drop down menu.
Ticket volunteers will scan tickets, check IDs and put on wrist bands. Skills required: must be friendly, lots of patience, courteous, ready to stand and talk to everyone, and be calm. Please choose a Tickets shift from the following drop down menu.
