Volunteer at GDIF

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with GDIF –
it’d be great to have you on the team!


We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to make GDIF a truly memorable event. If you enjoy meeting new people, being part of a team and being outdoors this is a great opportunity for you.


Volunteer at the GDIF HUB

This summer, GDIF, in association with the Independent Street Arts Network, invites artists, festival directors, programmers, funders and all those with a professional interest in Outdoor Arts to join us in Greenwich at the new GDIF FESTIVAL HUB.

The programme will be packed full of useful opportunities to develop skills, reflect on the work of the sector, and take advantage of excellent networking opportunities in an informal and friendly atmosphere”

GDIF is looking for a small team of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers with a knack for excellent communication to manage the Festival HUB and ensure that artists, industry figures and delegates have an excellent experience whilst participating in the HUB’s programme of events.

The role will include meeting and greeting attendees as they arrive at the HUB, managing the front reception and keeping a log of who is in attendance, and possibly carrying out some bar work towards the end of each day.

The HUB will be located at London South East Colleges, Greenwich Park Centre, King George Street, London SE10 8QB

Please get in touch with Volunteer Coordinator Harry on harry@festival.org for more information.
