Join our BEAF 2021 Volunteer Programme

BEAF volunteers are the bedrock of what we do. From our amazing steering committee who meet online every fortnight throughout the year to plan and deliver exciting creative projects in the local community, to the ever growing list of amazing people who help out at our BEAF festival every year.

Each year, we provide a volunteer programme leading up to the festival for anyone who wants to get involved, earn some new skills and meet some like-minded people from the local area!

“Through volunteering at BEAF I was able to express my creativity and meet with the local community. I’m so glad I volunteered!” 

What you will do

We love to involve local people who know about the area and who can give information to visitors but also there are a variety of roles we need people to help us with.  The list is long but it might include:

  • * looking after an exhibition or venue,
  • * front of house duties,
  • * distributing programmes
  • * and generally helping out where needed!

Join our 2021 Online Volunteer Programme

This year, we will be running online training sessions on the last Wednesday of each month. This training will be invaluable for volunteering at the BEAF festival in 2021 as well as provide transferable skills for working in the events industry. Each session will cover a specific topic introduced by our training team with targeted exercises designed to support your learning, and guest speakers from industry. The sessions will last between 1 hour and 1.5 hours and is totally free to attend! 

Interested?

Drop us a line here and you’ll be invited to join our introductory Zoom meeting on Wednesday 27th January to meet Caroline Johnston and Lucy Turner who will be your main point of contact on the run up to the festival.

Don’t forget to follow us on social media for our latest updates. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
