VOLUNTEERING & CAREERS
Every year we rely on hundreds of volunteers who help out with every stage of the festival. During the build up, during and after the festival we value so many people's kind contributions and efforts that help make this festival what it is today.
All our volunteers, whether they help during the event or either side, are appreciated hugely. When helping out at the event, we have refreshments, snacks and vouchers for our AITP caterers of the weekend.
You will also be able to wear the now instantly recognised Art in the Park yellow t-shirts! Whether you want to help to fulfil your personal development, Duke of Edinburgh awards, or work experience we would love to have you onboard. There is also an opportunity for more focussed work experience with our creative producers and logistics team. Please head to our contact page to find the relevant team member to speak to.
Before the event in Summer we will host a volunteer launch party, where we discuss all roles available at the weekend, as well as giving out our volunteer packs and brochures. If you would like to keep in touch and hear more updates as they come, please follow our social media or sign up to our newsletter.
We are always looking for the best local talent to be involved with the Festival, if and when we have specific roles available we will post them here, check back for more information or follow our social media and sign up to our newsletter to hear news as it breaks!
We are expanding our board of directors. As a Community Interest Company, we require directors to sit on our board to ensure we meet our statutory and other obligations. Occupying an important position of trust and carrying out a range of duties and responsibilities, our directors take collective decisions and are responsible for ensuring that Art in the Park is run in a way that will continue to satisfy the community interest test. We currently have five trustees, who's skills and experience cover visual arts, events management, legal, education, marketing and research. We are particularly interested in meeting potential new trustees with an interest, experience and/or networks in the following sectors:
Diversity and Inclusion
Retail and Local Business
Youth and Community Engagement
