UKYA National Festival: Derby 2016

Volunteer opportunities


UK Young Artists is looking to recruit a volunteer team to support our National Festival in Derby, this November.

We are looking for a team with a variety of backgrounds and experience and we are able to offer a variety of differing roles. Welcoming audiences and providing information is at the heart of the team’s delivery, but we are also looking for people to help with installing and de-installing visual art works, support for outdoor performances, and a marketing/social media support team.

You will be supported and trained in your role, and will be a part of the UKYA family, delivering a national level event in the City of Derby. There will be opportunities to see lots of high quality work, meet up and coming artists, develop your skills and get vital experience for your CV.

Key dates:
Deadline for applications  - 19th Oct, noon
Interviews - 20th or 21st Oct
Training - 25th or 28th Oct
Training for Marketing and Social Media Team - 26th Oct
Festival - 3rd – 6th Nov
