Art Sheffield is looking for people to join the Art Sheffield 2016 Festival volunteering team!

This is a great project for anyone who is interested in gaining experience in running an exhibition from the setup stages right through public opening; learning practical and organisational skills whilst meeting artists and curators from across the world.

We will be working with the volunteer team from Monday 4 April until Friday 13 May across all areas of the festival including:

  • Supporting artists and technical teams in installing artwork
  • Helping Festival Staff at the festival launch night on Fri 15 April
  • Acting as technical support during live events
  • Supporting the Festival Producers prepare the event
  • Assisting at events, workshops and talks
  • Meeting and greeting guests and VIPs
  • Documenting the launch and special events
  • Opening, closing and supervising exhibition spaces
  • Switching installations on/off
  • Marketing and Social Media

Volunteers will attend an initial meeting to hear more about the project as well as a special volunteers’ event during the installation week with the Artistic Director to hear more about the festival themes.
