Le Dîner en Blanc – Ottawa 2017 - Looking for New Team Members to Host

Dîner en Blanc International is currently looking for a group of 3 organizers to take on Le Dîner en Blanc – Ottawa.Le Dîner en Blanc is more than a simple picnic. It is a spontaneous movement founded on values like friendship, elegance, heritage, respect and secrecy... There are no commercial objectives, political affiliations, or charitable associations. For one night, guests enhance their city’s most prestigious public spaces by participating in the unexpected.

In recent years, Le Dîner en Blanc has truly become a global phenomenon, bringing people together from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds under one organization: Dîner en Blanc International. Today, more than 70 cities around the world host their own annual Dîner en Blanc event including Paris, New York, Sydney, Hong Kong, London, Melbourne, Vancouver, and Toronto.  Le Dîner en Blanc is celebrated in more than 10 cities across the Canada including Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto,Montreal and Ottawa.Le Dîner en Blanc – Ottawa had its premiere in the summer of 2016.

Notes to the interested organizers: 
•    We are looking for a team of 3 people who have the experience in managing large scale events and who have dealt with alcohol and venue permits.
•    All communications with Dîner en Blanc International will be in French or English.
•    Dîner en Blanc International does not produce the events. We offer a support service and training to organizers wishing to host their own Dîner en Blanc. As this service is offered for free, organizers must have the drive, experience, and structure, and they must comply with the standards and values established by Le Dîner en Blanc. 
•    It is important to understand that we don’t hire any organizers. Events are headed by passionate, local people who are in love with their city and the concept. Each event is financially independent from Dîner en Blanc International Inc. 
•    Le Dîner en Blanc cannot be associated with any charitable or political causes. 

We will prioritize applications submitted before June 26, 2017.

Thank you for your interest. We hope that you become part of our unique and original Dîner en Blanc experience!

Best regards,
Dîner en Blanc International Team
