Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers will provide invaluable support. They can get involved with the digital light art festival and associated learning & engagement programme in various ways – including event stewarding, supporting artists and their work, interacting with visitors, vlogging and much more. Volunteering with Light Up Poole is a great way to gain experience in working on large-scale arts events, learn new skills, and make friends.

Frequency –  Stewards are needed over three evening sessions. Volunteers would preferably do all the sessions but fewer would also be possible.

When required – 16:00h start to 21:00h finish with a steward briefing one hour before on each day for new volunteers.

Special Requirements (e.g. waterproofs, lunch, safety boots)

Warm waterproof clothing, hats, gloves, scarfs and appropriate footwear for February and weather on the evening(s), umbrella, torch and phone helpful.

Skills/Qualifications/Experience (required or helpful)

Helpful to have some arts event experience, good with the public (including those with mobility needs and /or disabilities) with a calm and helpful manner. Enthusiasm for public engagement in the arts and Poole’s locality/ identity.
