Time to Gain: Volunteers Required for Journeys Festival International Leicester

Journeys Festival International celebrates the creative talent of exceptional refugee and asylum seeker artists and shares refugee experiences through great art and culture.

Produced by ArtReach, the Festival takes place for the seventh year in Leicester from 15 August to 30 August 2019. The Festival takes place at various locations and venues across the diverse and vibrant city of Leicester.

Through a wide and exciting range of creative media and disciplines including live music, workshops, theatre, performance, film, discussion, exhibitions and pop-up events, Journeys Festival International aims to bring the exceptional talent of local, national and international refugee artists into the public eye.

Want to be a part of this? In addition to the core team that produces and manages the Festival, we are on the look for a team of enthusiastic volunteers.

No minute will be the same as you go from helping share information with the public, support the talented artists and workshop before gaining a deeper appreciation of working in the arts by helping with evaluation tasks.

We will cover expenses for volunteers and anticipate that this should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for volunteers from any background.

Volunteers (aged 18+) are needed from Thursday 15 August to Friday 30 August 2019 and shifts can be arranged around your availability.

Volunteers will have a full briefing in August, date and venue to be confirmed.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Hannah Thomas, Assistant Producer, via hannah@artreach.biz with the following information:

  • Name and contact details

  • Availability between 15-30 August 2019

  • A bit about yourself and why you are interested in taking part in the festival.
