the roles present during EASA
(not so relevant in 2020 gatherings)
Participants is the biggest number of applications as each country normally can select around seven candidates. For applying as a participant we advice you to keep updated on the EASA social media national page of the country you are from or currently study or live in. This is important as each country may have a different application procedure and deadline. You can directly get in touch with the National Contacts of your country - see the contact section.
The NCs (National Contact) are the key communication link between organizers and participants, and the relation between EASA as an international and local community. It is the NC's that are selecting the participants for the national teams. Do not hesitate in dropping them an e-mail if you have questions! Find the contact of your NC here.
If you want to be involved in the organisational aspect of the event, you can apply as a Helper. These applications are lead by the organizing team of the specific event; helpers are picked internationally. Some of the tasks as a helper tend to be working on info-point, taking care of the tool-box, helping in the kitchen, driving materials to workshops, tending the bar, etc. It is also appreciated if helpers can come before and/or stay after the event to help setting up and dismantle. All these tasks will be split into shifts, making sure there is some free time to experience the event.
Another option could be applying as a Tutor. For this role you also need to be aware of the organizing team selection process. Their aim throughout the year is to inform the general public with further details about the event. Within this time, they will call out for potential tutors to go and visit the site and have further discussions about it physically. It is not compulsory but highly recommended so you get a better idea of what you can work with. After this phase, a deadline will be given for submitting the propose workshops. As a potential tutor, you have the option to team up into a group of up to four people. Tutors do not need to be only architects and architecture students, EASA is an open platform for interdisciplinary exchange. It is expected of the tutors to be close to the organizers and regularly communicate with them months before, as well as during the event.
Lastly, if you are unable to attend the whole event or just want to check out EASA without any obligations, we recommend you to be our Guest. You don’t need to be an observer if you don’t want to, you can also ask and help out in your particular interests!
