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.

Whether you have an interest in visual arts, you’d like to learn new skills or share your skills with us, we would love for you to get involved. By joining the team, you’ll be helping us deliver an event that has been going strong for over two decades!

Now is a great time to sign up!

We’re gearing up for this year’s festival, the 25th edition of Deptford X, and we need your help.

During the festival, there are so many different roles to get stuck into, from giving tours and providing directions, to handing out leaflets and photo documenting the festival. We’re looking for people who can be a brilliant advocate for the festival – a friendly face who’s willing to share their passion for visual arts with the public. Here are just some other ways you could offer your skills to support us:

  • If you’re passionate about communication, we’d love your help managing our social media accounts. This could be anything from selecting beautiful imagery from our archive, to writing attention-grabbing copy for Instagram.
  • Are you interested in archives and uncovering more about the 25 year history of the festival? Around the year, we’re looking for volunteers to digitally file the festival archives.
  • Deptford X also organises lots of workshops in the local community and we’re always looking for friendly, creative people to give us a hand delivering them.
  • Love photography or videography? We’re looking for volunteers to document the festival from every angle.

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