Being involved in a festival from its very beginning is a great way to gain experience in arts and events management, and we hope volunteers from all walks of life will be able to be part of the festival. The main part of the festival will be in four ‘zones’ in the region – Gretna, Barony College, Galloway Forest park and Gatehouse. The festival team is based in Dumfries. Most of your work as a volunteer will be based around these five locations.
EAFS volunteers will assist the team on the following aspects of the festival:
- Marketing: Distribution and Mailout – may require hours before the 24 Aug
- Marketing: Social Media
- Physical Work: Assisting the team and the artists in setting up their art work and/or event, may involve heavy lifting
- Data Collection during the Festival
- Assisting Artists/Events during the Festival
Volunteers will be appointed on a first come-first served basis (subject to suitability) and the final deadline will be the 12th of August.
