Volunteering with Edinburgh Art Festival

Each year our team of volunteers play a vital role in delivering Edinburgh Art Festival. Taking part offers a fantastic opportunity to get behind the scenes and gain hands-on experience of an arts festival environment.
Volunteers can contribute to a range of activities across the Festival. From talking to the public about the programme, assisting with enquiries at the Festival Kiosk, invigilating our public commissions, supporting the team with the stewarding of events and contributing to Festival tours, there are plenty of different ways to be involved. Full training and support is given, and expenses are provided to cover lunches and travel (within the city limits).
