Volunteer Opportunities

The 2016 Belfast Photo Festival Youth Edition will bring the busiest and most ambitious programme of exhibitions and events ever seen in Northern Ireland. To help realise this we are looking to form a first-class team of volunteers to help us setup and deliver the Festival.

The Festival's success relies on the enthusiasm and hard work of a group of committed volunteers. The Festival offers volunteers the invaluable experience of working with internationally renowned curators, photographers, publishers and photographic professionals and offers the camaraderie of being part of an international experience. In addition, we will be giving away tickets to a selection of events including a number of those within our VIP programme.

Festival Dates: 3rd April - 30th May 2016

(Programme Coming Soon)

Volunteers will receive:

  • Tickets to film screening 
  • Entrance to VIP sections of the Festival
  • An end of Festival volunteer party

Belfast Photo Festival will provide training, support and a reference to help your future career. Previous volunteers, who excelled in their roles by showing passion and dedication, have been employed by a number of arts related organisations and businesses (e.g. The MAC & Ulster Museum)


Volunteers will gain experience with:

  • Exhibition installation / de-installation
  • Administration and marketing
  • Documentation (photographing, filming and editing)
  • Stewarding / invigilating events
  • Assisting artists

We will make every effort to offer a range of experience and match individuals where possible to particular areas of interest. We are interested in volunteers from all backgrounds and sections of the community.

Join our team and become an integral part of Northern Ireland's leading visual arts Festival and help deliver the biggest and most spectacular Festival.
