Volunteering & Internships

Volunteering at brisbane festival

Each year hundreds of volunteers come together to help deliver Brisbane Festival – Queensland's premier annual arts event. Audiences flock to Brisbane Festival every September for 22 days of circus, music, dance, theatre and city-wide celebrations, including Sunsuper Riverfire. Many aspects of the Festival would not be the same without the generous assistance of volunteers.

Volunteering at the Festival is a fantastic way for anyone with an interest in arts and events to get involved with a flexible, rewarding, short-term commitment. Whether you're a supporter of the arts, a student, a creative, or you just think it sounds like fun, the volunteer program has a lot to offer.

Applications for 2018 volunteer positions are not yet open. Please check back early-mid 2018 for updated volunteering information.
