The Galway International Arts Festival gets underway this Monday, July 16, but there is still time to volunteer at the festival - the largest to date in the event's 41 year history.
Volunteers get to create a volunteer schedule online that suits their interests and availability. Shifts are needed in theatre, visual arts, street spectacle, the Festival Garden, First Thought Talks, and at the Heineken Big Top.
The Volunteer Department is seeking committed volunteers to assist with the family-friendly light and sound installation, Luminarium, in Eyre Square from July 20 to 28, with a mandatory training session on July 19. Email [email protected] for more info. The full programme can be viewed on www.giaf.ie Those who volunteered with GIAF in 2017 will already have a volunteer account and do not need to apply again, but must email Anika Massmann on [email protected] to reactivate their account.
