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.

Would you like to learn new skills and meet new people? Are you interested in learning about how an international arts festival works, or develop your experience of working with people in a public-facing arts setting?

Liverpool Arab Arts Festival runs Friday 12 – Sunday 21 July 2024. We are especially looking for support to deliver these key events during the festival:

Visual arts
Port Cities exhibition (Friday 12 – Saturday 20 July, Space Liverpool)
Port Cities symposium (Monday 15 July, Bluecoat)

Volunteers will need to be available during the festival period and ideally commit to two shifts. Working with our small but dedicated team will provide volunteers with practical experience of event logistics and audience engagement in a public-facing environment.

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

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