EDIT: Expo for Design, Innovation & Technology
I jumped feet first into my role at EDIT. I had four days to build a complex Volunteer Program from scratch to support the exhibition’s programming and logistical needs before our first round of Team Training Sessions. Thank goodness for an incredible team who showered me with tons of information from Day 1… and a photographic memory to retain it all.
Aside from my official duties, I had my steel toes and hard-hat on for construction and installation of the exhibition, was one of our Health & Safety Officers, aided our EDIT Academy programming team with executing our ambitious free education programming during weekdays, and jumped in when needed for our Make Change Speaker Series.
5500 students become Design Thinkers at EDIT Academy
125 speakers from 11 countries shared their wisdom
530 volunteers dedicated their time to make the festival run smoothly.
