2018 Volunteer Opportunities

We are currently looking for volunteers interested in getting involved in all aspects of Glasgow International 2018.  Our team of volunteers are crucial to the success of the festival each edition and provide essential and valued support across the entire festival.

All our volunteers will receive a high level of support from the Glasgow International team and a training programme will be provided to everyone who takes part.

We are particularly keen to extend our volunteering programme to involve more groups of people. Whilst we are looking for volunteers who have a background and particular interest in contemporary visual art, no experience is necessary. We are looking for friendly faces, from a range of backgrounds and ages, who can help our audiences navigate the festival over the course of 18 exciting days!

We ask only for a passion for contemporary art and for the city of Glasgow.

Find out more about the different roles available by downloading the Gi2018 volunteer roles document (PDF).

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the following forms:

Please return your completed forms to our Volunteer Coordinator, Claire Hills at claire.hills@glasgowinternational.org by Friday 23 February 2018.
