Join us! You can be a valuable part of ArtBomb, gain skills, meet well established artists and have a load of fun through our volunteering programme.
ArtBomb 22 presents a provocative mix of new commissions and existing work by local and international artists with installations, performance, exhibitions, community workshops, talks, music, films, street art and more.
ArtBomb volunteers are as much part of the festival as the artists, producers and professional workers in the sector. This festival is about change in all its aspects. You will have chance to share your views, engage with the public, learn about art that you may not have been exposed to before. Become part of our community, engage, enjoy and contribute, to the festival, and to the city.
Some roles are Artists buddy - The chance to work directly with an exciting contemporary artist - Community engagement - To assist on workshops and public participation. Tech assistance - Gain knowledge of how artists work with technology, such as video, light and sound. Public guides/info - Develop communication skills to discuss and talk about the works made and shown in a way that makes it accessible to the public. Invigilation - Mostly in non traditional ways, so performative, and spaces, like shop windows or on the street. Marketing - Gain awareness about digital publicity and about reaching an audience. Assist in expanding the reach of the festival so it becomes an important landmark event. Documenting - liaise with our team who will document the festival through film, photography, writing, blogging etc help produce the content that will become the archive of the event for those unable to attend the festival. General assistance - we will have many other ways to be involved with the festival such as hanging and installing work, builds, painting etc
The works inspire conversation, are meaningful and with purpose.
This festival is about impact, provoking change and new thinking about how we live in the city and globally. Be part of the evolution.
