Volunteer Applications – Now Open!

The annual Canberra Writers Festival will take place from Friday 24th August – Sunday 26th August across multiple venues around Canberra including the National Museum, Old Parliament House, National Library, National Press Club and many more.  The festival will feature multiple events ranging from keynote addresses, panel sessions, workshops, lunches and dinners as well as in conversation sessions with national and international  authors.

This is the first year of the festival and as such we are in the process of building not only the event but also the business from the ground up.  We are seeking enthusiastic, hardworking and talented individuals to work with us as interns and festival volunteers.

Opportunities for Onsite Festival work include:

– Venue teams

– Ticketing

– Artist Drivers

– Production

– Festival administration

– Artist Liaison

This is an opportunity to gain hands on experience in what it takes to produce a festival from the start-up phase.  If you enjoy a challenge and are not afraid to get your hands dirty we look forward to hearing from you!
