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 working within an arts festival environment.
Volunteers play a forward-facing role, working across a range of activities. From meeting the public, responding to enquiries at the festival Kiosk, invigilating public commissions, stewarding events and leading 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).
