10,000 Kazoos Volunteers EOI

One kazoo? That’s silly and fun. But 10,000 kazoos? That’s a city-sized pied piper of absurdity—and we need volunteers to help us bring it all together on the day.

10,000 Kazoos is a mass participation event for RISING 2023. It’s going to be a big, unifying, howling moment in the heart of Melbourne, in Federation Square, and anyone can take part.

RISING is seeking volunteers to herd, help and hand out kazoos to the 10,000 participants descending on Fed Square.

It’s a great opportunity for people looking for event management experience as well as the chance to meet new people, make connections, and be part of something huge that is—to be quite frank—pretty bonkers.
