LAAF 2023: Call for festival volunteers

Call for volunteers!

Would you like to learn new skills and meet new people? Are you interested in learning about how an international arts festival works, or want to engage with leading Arab artists?

We are looking for committed volunteers to play a key part in realising the UK’s premier annual festival of Arab arts and culture in Liverpool this summer.

Liverpool Arab Arts Festival runs Thursday 6 – Sunday 16 July 2023.

We are especially looking for support to deliver key events:

Festival launch event with Aar Maanta and Nxdia (Friday 7 July, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall Music Room)
Maya Youssef (Friday 14 July, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall Music Room)

Arabs Are Not Funny (Saturday 8 July, Royal Court Studio)
Ahmed Masoud and Farah Chamma (Tuesday 11 July, Unity Theatre)

Volunteers will need to be available during the festival period and ideally commit to 2 shifts. Working with our small but dedicated team will provide volunteers with practical experience of event logistics, audience engagement and artist liaison.

Travel expenses will be covered, along with expenses towards lunch, if applicable for the shift.

A full volunteer induction will be held in Liverpool before the festival.

Interested in getting involved? Please complete this online form before Monday 19 June.
