I’m Keenia, the Marketing Assistant at Flatpack Festival. I’m just getting in touch to let you know about some volunteering opportunities we have now for Flatpack Festival 2019 (30 April – 5 May), and I would appreciate you sharing this amongst your students.
I think this would be of real interest to students who have a passion for art/film/music, and are looking to gain meaningful work experience within the arts. This is a great chance to meet like-minded individuals and help make an impact on one of Birmingham’s leading cultural organisations.
To give a bit of background, Flatpack Festival is a wonderfully eclectic film and mixed-arts festival based in Digbeth, Birmingham. Every spring we take over venues across the city, bringing an inventive line-up of screenings, exhibitions, installations, performances and parties, from live cinema to shorts and creative workshops for kids, new innovative talent alongside forgotten treasures, and a signature mix of unique surprises.
With so many events in our programme, we couldn’t handle it all on our own. That’s why we’re searching for enthusiastic, friendly volunteers who can help us make Flatpack 2019 a success. There’s also a chance for volunteers to access some of our screenings and events for free (depending on availability)!
There are plenty of opportunities available, including:
– General Support
– Marketing Support
– Colour Box Support (Colour Box is our strand for families and young children)
– Production Support
– Guest Liaison Support
– Venue Coordinator
For more information on the roles and how to apply, click here.
To see how some of our previous volunteers have spent their time with us, check out our Volunteers Instagram.
Please note, all volunteers must be available to work a minimum of 3 shifts during the festival (30 April – 5 May).
Applications close on Friday 1 March.
If you have any questions, please email abbe.
