Volunteers

Would you like to engage with art in new ways, meet like-minded people and gain new skills? Then consider joining our valued team of enthusiastic volunteers and be part of the UK’s largest festival of contemporary art. By getting involved with our volunteer programme you will get to participate in The City is a School, our contemporary art learning platform, work with art professionals and gain valuable experience in the field of contemporary art.

Volunteers will be needed at various times between 15 June and 28 October 2018. We would love it if you could volunteer on a regular basis, but if you can only commit to a couple of volunteering sessions we would still be delighted. All volunteers will be reimbursed for their travel to and from the Biennial and other relevant expenses.

We will be running Volunteer induction sessions on Sunday 1 July (1–4pm) and Tuesday 3 July (1–4pm) at Baltic Creative, Jamaica Street, Liverpool L1 0AF.
