Volunteering with Edinburgh Art Festival

Volunteers play a key role in the festival, hosting visitors from near and far to the UK’s largest annual festival of visual arts. Every Spring we seek enthusiastic, friendly and engaged volunteers to join the Edinburgh Art Festival team to provide an outstanding visitor experience. As part of the team of volunteers you meet a close-knit group of like-minded individuals, gain great work experience and discover summer festival time in Edinburgh from a whole new perspective.


Applications are now closed for the 2017 Edinburgh Art Festival. 

The volunteer call out to be involved with Edinburgh Art Festival 2018 will be launched in Spring 2018.
