Volunteer with us

Deptford X has a small core team, so we're always looking for volunteers to assist us throughout the year!


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 between 16th – 25th September, in a wide range of public sites and outdoor spaces. Many projects will engage audiences in active and unexpected ways.

Volunteers help to look after artworks, help us document everything that’s going on, chat to visitors, staff the information points, gather evaluation information, and help fundraise for Deptford X.  Previously, volunteers have shared some of their specific talents with us, such as photography or content creation. There will also be opportunities to assist with festival preparation earlier in the year which can help build specific skill sets linked to programme delivery such as art handling and installing.

We don’t require any previous experience in the arts and have both online remote working volunteer opportunities as well as on-site opportunities.

Sign up using the form linked below and a member of our team will get in touch with you. If you need any support with your application or would like to submit in an alternative format such as video or audio, please contact jessica@deptfordx.org.
