Do you want to gain experience in the arts industry? Have a passion for the arts? Want to mingle with like-minded arts-lovers and professionals?

The Festival of Colour each year offers fantastic opportunities for arts lovers, enthusiasts and students to support our festival performances, assist the artists, engage with the public and be the face of the festival! And don’t forget…you get to see some of New Zealand’s best cultural performances – for free!

We require an exceptional team of 100 volunteers to assist the Festival team with a variety of roles. You do not require prior experience but we do request that you sign up for a minimum of three front of house sessions or the equivalent time on other festival jobs. You’ll also need to be available for the volunteers’ training session – date to be confirmed.

Example duties:

  • Scanning tickets
  • Ushering
  • Setting & resetting of venues for performances
  • Driving artists to the airport
  • Assisting with door sales
  • Supporting festival team in the office with admin tasks
  • Assisting catering team during busy times

In return for volunteering your time you will receive a volunteers’ T-Shirt, coffee voucher to use in the Crystal Palace and an invitation to a volunteers’ thank you function.
