Call for Volunteers
Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair is looking for motivated individuals to join our onsite volunteer team for the duration of the 2018 fair. Volunteers work closely with our artists, operations team and partners. The role is varied and exciting, providing valuable experience for anyone interested in a career in events and contemporary art. Activities include hosting and event support, liaising with artists, visitors and partners, sales, data capture and digital assistance for the social media savvy volunteers..
As a volunteer your primary role is at the front of house and event support. Volunteers are the face of the fair and the first point of contact for artists, partners and visitors. Volunteering is a fun way to see the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair from a different perspective, meet artists and collectors, and establish networks of contacts for career development.
Experience in sales and event production is desirable but not essential - we want to provide volunteers with an opportunity to develop skills suited for a career in the art world.
