Brighton Festival 2018 is seeking volunteers who would like to be part of the action this April and May. If you are passionate about the arts, Brighton Festival 2018 would love to hear from you: members of staff from various Brighton Festival departments will hold a special drop-in session for anyone interested in volunteering on Thursday 8th March from 5pm – 7pm at the Brighton Dome Café-bar.
Brighton Festival’s successful volunteer scheme has been running for several years. From greeting the public and directing customers to outdoor promotions and educational work, the scheme aims to be as varied and accessible as the Festival itself, offering a well-rounded insight into how a festival works.
As a volunteer, individuals will have the opportunity to assist in delivering a whole range of exciting events throughout the May Festival and beyond: both across Brighton Dome venues and at other festival sites around the city, working with multiple Brighton Festival departments including Marketing, Artistic Planning, Press, Production and Visitor Services.
There will be opportunities for volunteers to work weekdays and weekends, daytimes and evenings from April. Don’t worry if the hours you have free are scattered, Brighton Festival are still keen for you to get in touch.
The Brighton Festival is the largest annual multi-arts festival in England. It includes music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film and literature. It stretches over a period of three weeks in May and is spread across various venues in Brighton and Hove. The festival epitomizes Brighton’s inventive artistic spirit, the events are renowned as experimental and pioneering, and this year will be no exception.
The festival has always attracted internationally renowned and influential Guest Directors who weave a thread of continuity throughout the programme. Since 2009 the festival has seen Kate Tempest, Michael Rosen and Vanessa Redgrave as guest director. This year the Brighton Festival’s artistic programme will be overseen by David Shrigley, an artist best known for his simple, understated drawings that make satirical comments on human interactions. The graphic artist is also well known for his photography, sculpture, animation and painting.
