Would you like to help make BE FESTIVAL an event to remember? We are looking for passionate, dynamic people based in Birmingham who are interested in theatre and visual arts to help deliver BE FESTIVAL 2013 (2-7 July).
You will be a vital part of the BE FESTIVAL team, supporting visiting companies and festival employees in a range of responsibilities. Volunteering roles include, supporting the get-in and get-out of the festival (up to 10th July), office support, marketing, cleaning, visual artist installation, bar shifts, dinner service, Front of House and Box office, documentation and evaluation support, ushering and technical to name but a few.
In return for volunteering we aim to provide professional development via volunteer placement, for example; training with technicians, administrative skills, marketing and front of house duties via discussing shared aims with you. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to see the festival performances, the visual art programme, attend 1-2 workshops and will be provided with food whilst at the festival venue on shift. We also have a small amount of budget to support travel bursaries on a case-by-case basis.
You will need to be available to attend the volunteer briefing meetings and training days, and to begin some support work prior to the festival (between 6 June – 10 July) as well as the festival week (2 – 7 July 2013).
If you would like to volunteer please send an email detailing your interest, any relevant skills (for example if you speak other languages or drive a car this is also useful to know) and experience (including a CV) to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.
