All of Groundwork's events are free to attend, but due to the limited capacity of spaces for each activity pre-booking is essential. For more information on individual events and to reserve your space please visit our events page.
If you would like to join our team, we are currently looking for individuals with an interest and passion in the arts, for performance and all things creative, who are keen to play a crucial role in the delivery of our festival Groundwork Weekender. The festival will take place between 14-16th September and we're looking for a range of people to support as:
Information Hosts - those who are happy and confident chatting with people, who can champion the festival and provide audiences with any information they may need, including directions, facilities, and performances, to ensure the festival goers have the best weekend possible.
Assistant Technicians - those with experience and knowledge of the technical production of a festival who can support our Technical Manager with the installation of works (in the lead up to the festival) and also across the weekend to support with the smooth delivery of all events, exhibitions and activities.
Invigilators and Tour Guides - those who can be present at the different sites of the artists' works/events/exhibition in order to oversee the work and/or support people's interaction with the work via our guided bus tour of the city.
First Aiders/Health & Safety Officers - we're looking for three people to support our team to ensure medical, fire and security issues are monitored and dealt with promptly and safely throughout the festival.
In return we will endeavour to support you with travel between festival locations, guaranteed entrance to events and activities (when you are not on shift), references (if required) and if working longer than 4 hours at a time a meal voucher. All volunteers will receive an exclusive artwork produced either by one of our commissioned artists or project partners.
So if you are interested in donating your time, meeting and working with new people, gaining work experience or just trying out something new we are interested in hearing from you. For more information or to register your interest please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
