We are looking for volunteers to be a part of our homegrown 2020 Festival (running from 6 – 16 August).

Our wonderful team works in a variety of areas and is vital in making the Festival a success. Roles are available in the lead-up to and during the Festival in the following areas:

  • Front of house – assisting with event set up, seating audience members, crowd flow and direction
  • Information – providing general information to Festivalgoers
  • Admin – helping out in the Darwin Festival office
  • Market research – administering questionnaires to audience members
  • Distribution – assisting with distribution of Festival calendars around Darwin and letter drops to residents
  • Info & Market stalls – giving out Festival calendars and show info pre-Festival

Volunteers are required to help for a minimum of three shifts across the 11-day Festival, with shifts ranging from three to five hours. No experience is necessary – just a positive attitude and an interest in being a part of a unique and unforgettable festival celebration.

Join the team and really feel a part of DF20.
