About reffurence

What is a "Reffurence"?

About us

Reffurence is an annual convention which takes place in the BeNeLux, Europe. We come together to celebrate the furry fandom, which includes art, literature and performances based around anthropomorphic animals.

The main objective of Reffurence is to bring people together that like the fandom, the art and/or the community. Having events such as community games, meetups and dances available for all the people that want to come and visit.

Reffurence is a registered Netherlands Nonprofit Organisation with organisation number 86974661. See more on the website of the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce. All the revenues made during the event will be entirely used in equipement or services to improve the next edition or given to charity.

Volunteering

Would you like to help?

That's amazing! First of all, thank you for considering helping us out, because after all, this event doesn't happen when there are no volunteers. Keep in mind that we do require our volunteers to attend certain meetings and that there are expectations with regards to the volunteers who are helping out. So, volunteering at Reffurence is a unique experience and we do expect our teammembers to chip in during the convention.

The following departments are looking to recruit more volunteers:

Security (5 positions available)

The team who keeps the convention and the attendees secure, making sure that people have a badge, etc.

Feedback (1 position available)

Learningpoints are important for each and every single thing during the convention and that's what this department collects from staff and attendees.

How do I apply for a position?

Please send an e-mail to volunteers@reffurence.com.

Make sure you add the following details to the email;

  1. Your first name and last name
  2. Your fursona name
  3. Your telegram handle or email
  4. Which position you're applying for
  5. Why we should consider you
