Pssst, Wanna be a glassworks volunteer?

By johnboy - 15 July 2008 15

Arts Around Canberra informs us that the Canberra glassworks is looking for volunteers.

    There will be a volunteer open day Saturday 26 July and Canberra Glassworks is encouraging people to turn up and learn more. All training is provided and all we are asking is a couple of hours a week, fortnight or month.

What’s Your opinion?

“Staffing”. What’s wrong with the word “staffing”?

I am a devout believer in gender-neutral language being used for gender-neutral purposes, but “personing” is just lazy and a free kick to the Devines, Bolts, Blairs and Albrechtsens of the world.

Looks like they have finally run out of goodwill amongst art school glass students who had to pass around food at the openings etc.

perhaps they should look at older retirees that are looking to do something to feel needed by the community, instead of sitting around waiting for their relatives to visit them in their big, empty houses…

many of these people still have much to give to the community. Might as well let them.

You’re right – they should pay for advertising for an unpaid position that benefits the community.

Typical, they get a shipload of ACT ratepayer’s money to set this up, then they need volunteers to “person” the place.

They could have said Gallery Attendant – how hard is that ..pfft personing – what a joke, PC crap at its finest.

My name was Mandrake, but society made me change it to Persondrake.

Personing?

Political correctness is killing us….

Apparently one of the duties for a volunteer is “personing the gallery“.

Ads are what go in the ad boxes, this is what we call content, you can skip right by it anytime you like.

In future please address edtorial concerns via the contact box.

Sorry – so who decides which ads go in the ad box and which ads are considered content?
