Become a Shubbak Festival Volunteer!

Whether you’re new to Shubbak or have been involved before, we need your help!

Shubbak 2019 will take place this summer from 28 June-14 July, with the best of contemporary art and culture from the Arab World. Our fifth festival brings 80 exciting events by over 150 Arab artists to 25 of London’s stages, cinemas, outdoor locations, galleries and museums. You can see the full programme here.

Shubbak would not be possible without the dedication and enthusiasm of its volunteers! We are currently seeking passionate and committed individuals to help us deliver our ambitious programme of events.

As an integral part of the Shubbak team, volunteers will gain hands-on experience and have the chance to meet artists and industry professionals. Areas of focus include production and technical support, PR and social media, evaluation, and stewarding. Arabic and French language is a plus. We want you to have a brilliant time with us and so we’re keen for you to be involved in whatever area interests you most.

We especially welcome volunteers with special needs and we have resources available to support you in your volunteer role.

Local travel and lunch expenses will be reimbursed.

We look forward to hearing from you!
