Are you our next Artstate Volunteer?

We are looking for a bunch of amazing volunteers who are interested in helping out as Artstate volunteers during the event in Tamworth in October and November.

We know that everyone has different skills, so check out the list of jobs we need done and pick one that suits you.

You will get a unique Artstate volunteer T-shirt to wear during the event and the opportunity to sit in on events and conference sessions. We need you to be committed, enthusiastic and very helpful to our conference delegates – most of whom will never have been to Tamworth before. All volunteer shifts are 3 hours long. A minimum age of 18 years applies for all volunteers (as at 31 October 2019). View the application form here.
