Birmingham International Dance Festival is back from 17 June - 3 July 2022.

BIDF Volunteers support our dance-packed outdoor events and exciting work touring around the city centre and to community settings. It’s about connecting people with great dance, inspiring local people and welcoming new audiences.

There is a wide range of volunteer roles across our outdoor festivals weather it’s chaperoning artists, supporting marketing or guiding audiences – all of which are vital to its success.

BIDF Volunteers have a particular focus on our outdoor spaces. Locations include:

Birmingham City Centre – Centenary Square, Victoria Square, Chamberlain Square and Brindley Place
Handsworth Park, North Birmingham
Outdoor Theatre, Midlands Arts Centre & Cannon Hill Park, South Birmingham

Supporting the BIDF festival team, activities will include:

Greeting and chaperoning artists
assisting with event and performance setups with our Programming Team
stewarding events and working alongside our Front of House team
assisting with family activities and participatory projects
supporting marketing with social media and flyering
welcoming festival visitors of all backgrounds

This is an opportunity to be involved in a vibrant large-scale city-wide event and meet artists and performers from around the world. You can develop new skills to add to your CV, experience ‘behind the scenes of a major festival and meet new people. References will be available following your time with us.

If you are 18+, passionate and enthusiastic about dance and the arts, enjoy working with a wide range of people and have a “can-do” approach, then we’d love to hear from you.
