Festival Volunteers

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, Berwick-upon-Tweed

Unpaid

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival 2014: Border Crossing

Wednesday 17 - Sunday 21 September 2014

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival is an annual international celebration of the art of film and moving image art, set in Berwick-upon-Tweed in the far North of England. Each year we recruit a team of enthusiastic, dedicated and friendly volunteers to help create and deliver what is the biggest annual arts event in Northumberland.

This year we will need volunteers more than ever to help make our 10th edition of the Festival the biggest and best yet!

This is your opportunity to help to deliver our diverse and successful range of activities, once again transforming the entire town of Berwick-Upon-Tweed into one big screen. From stewarding and invigilation, to being a point of contact at our information desk, photographing the Festival, to working behind the scenes, events assistance, artist liaison and supporting our technical teams.

Opportunities To Volunteer

Every year the Festival recruits a team of volunteers without whom it simply wouldn't be possible to reach the scale and quality that we have become known for.

Our Volunteer Team are the faces of the festival - they're ambassadors for every venue, film, installation and individual experience in the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed once the festival begins. When you put on that festival T-shirt, you're becoming the festival itself.

Opportunities exist across many areas, before, during, and after the festival – and we can schedule around your existing commitments.

Who Should Apply?

Volunteers come from a range of backgrounds and cover activities in all areas of the event organisation and delivery, offering a chance for everyone to take part, and in return are offered unrivalled access to the festival.

Whether your interest is in film and the arts, in developing new skills, making new friends or in supporting the community of Berwick, there are many reasons to volunteer.

An inclusive, intergenerational approach is taken to volunteering at Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, with applications sought from anyone over the 16 years of age, and with no maximum age limit. Our oldest volunteer is 79!

What's In It For You?

- Volunteers are supported with their travel where possible 
- Accommodation at the local YHA is provided for those travelling from outside of town
- You'll receive excellent training both in preparation and on the job, allowing you to deliver the amazing experiences that make the festival what it is
- You'll get a sneak preview of the film and installations programme - sampling the films before anyone else
- You'll get the official festival T-shirt and tote bag - yours to keep - and a copy of the festival catalogue for free 
- Your festival experience will be tailored to your own interests, and the outcome can include professional references and performance evaluations, making it a valuable work experience/employability tool too
- Your experience can also help to work towards other training or projects you’re involved with, such as Arts Award
- You'll make friends, becoming an active part of a community of like-minded people, and your personal contribution will make a visible difference
- You'll be part of a dynamic and friendly team of people

Trustees

Shape, London

Unpaid

Shape is a disability led arts organisation that was established over 30 years ago. Our work seeks to improve disabled people’s access to the arts; supporting disabled people as artists, those aspiring to work in the arts, and as audience members. We believe that more disabled people should be able to benefit from the unique experience and inspiration that the arts provide. Unfortunately, despite greater equality in society today, disabled people are still faced with a range of barriers which limit their access to the arts. 

Our work is continuing to break down these barriers to ensure that disabled people are given opportunities to engage with the arts at all levels.    

To this end, we are looking for two enthusiastic people to bring skills and experience in any of these areas: Income Generation/Fundraising, PR & Marketing, IT & Digital Media; Business and Commerce, into a Board whose members have a rich diversity of backgrounds across a number of professional fields.  

We strongly encourageapplicationsfrom disabled people, as well as people from BME communities who have a clear commitment to upholding and enhancing the rights of disabled people.
