Becoming a Walldog is easy. Just register at an open event with brush in hand and ask to be directed to a wall. It’s that easy. Helping us organize, set up and teardown is another way to earn the “Walldog” title. Just make sure you check this site out regularly for upcoming event information.
Walldog Project Leaders are the next step up. No average person can become a project leader. They are chosen by their peers because they have proven themselves in several different ways. Project leaders above anything else must prove that they can lead a group of Dogs and manage their site. They must be responsible individuals that will see the job through to the end. In most cases project leaders have proven themselves in the area of design too. They need to have an understanding of these types of large projects and the media on which the design will be painted. They also need to have an understanding of the historical background of their project and their designs need to reflect that. It is possible to have joint project leaders for one site: one leader who manages the project and the other that designs the art. Most project leaders have attended several events before being asked to lead, and usually it’s the job of the Event Host to pick these leaders.
An Event Host is a Walldog that helps organize the event for a specific town. They will work alongside the town’s designated organizer in making sure that the event goes off without a hitch. Event hosts are usually Walldogs that have been project leaders in the past and have proven that they can successfully manage a site and are ready to manage the whole meet. It is important that they have been to past events so that they can truly understand the scope of such an event. This is probably the most difficult job a Walldog can have and requires a lot of that person’s time and energy.
