Volunteer with us!


Be a part of Deptford X Festival 2017!

Founded in 1998 as an artist-led project rooted in Deptford’s creative communities, Deptford X has grown to become one of the UK’s leading festivals of contemporary art. The festival will take place over 10 days in a wide range of public sites and spaces; many projects will engage audiences in active and unexpected ways. The scope of this year’s festival is more interdisciplinary than ever before, bringing together performance, moving image, sculpture and sound installation.

Deptford X are always looking for volunteers to make the festival possible.

Volunteers will help to install and look after artworks, get involved with workshops and live events, help us document everything that’s going on, chat to visitors about the projects, exhibitions, venues and events and staff the information points, gather evaluation information and sell Deptford X merchandise.

We are looking for anyone interested in the arts who has availability between 20 Sep and 02 Oct. There may also be opportunities to assist with festival preparation earlier in September – please do say if you would like to get involved at an earlier stage.

Deptford X will cover daily lunch/travel expenses up to £7.50 per volunteer.

Please email admin@deptfordx.org to register an initial expression of interest. We will contact potential volunteers in the very near future to confirm their availability.
