Volunteer Opportunities at Nuart Aberdeen 2022!

We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers who wish to gain some valuable experience at Nuart Aberdeen 2022. Our volunteers are an essential part of Nuart Festival and contribute to all areas of the production and events programme. We are looking for event staff, runners, artist assistants, drivers, production crew and admin/marketing support for the festival. There is no need for any training or previous experience as you will be fully briefed by the Nuart Team for your shifts.

We create dynamic schedules for our volunteers so you can try your hand at more than one role and get a well-rounded experience at the festival. Production will take place from around 1-9 June, with the launch weekend programme running 9-12 June. Our volunteer sign up form will ask you to indicate your areas of interest and your availability so we can allocate shifts and roles. This is a relaxed and fun volunteer opportunity and we really look forward to working with you soon!

-Summary of the volunteer roles we need help on:

Event Volunteers: Our launch weekend features a wide variety of public and private events such as receptions, film screenings, walking tours, a street art conference and workshops and we need volunteers to help all of these run smoothly. We need friendly people for this who are happy to deal with the public and the bonus is you get to enjoy the event too!

Artist Assistants Volunteers: Our artists tend to create large works of art and will need a helping hand. This could include anything from working directly with the artist to paint their mural, helping set up their supplies and get them tools, and even assisting on our lunch runs. This is a multi-faceted role, where having a creative bone in your body is helpful.

Volunteer Drivers: Artists and crew may need to be driven and collected from sites around town, including to the airport and back. Do you have your driver’s license and access to your own vehicle? This role is for you. Drivers are very important to us, as we are guests in your city and need a hand.

Production Crew Volunteers: Assisting artists and producers with the production of artwork on the street. This includes a huge amount of variety, and you will get a hands-on understanding of what it takes to work in production.

Volunteer Runners: There are a million little tasks that go into a production like Nuart. Runners are our chaos pilots that work in every part of the production and are happy to pitch in and get things done as needed!

Marketing and Admin Support Volunteers: With lots to do in the lead up to the festival this role could include office based work getting things sorted and tasks such as flyering in the days leading up to the launch weekend to make sure the people of Aberdeen know Nuart Aberdeen is happening!
