"I gained more knowledge of the artists and their works. How to talk to members of the public and discuss the art. Also how to network and made lots of good friends in similar walks of life.”

Liverpool Biennial is looking to recruit volunteers across a range of areas to support the festival delivery. Sometimes a role will require specialist skills sometimes it will simply need someone with enthusiasm who likes communicating with a wide range of people.
The key areas that could benefit from your time, skills and experience include:
Visitor services: exhibition hospitality and shop
We welcome a team made up of people with the most diverse skills, which means whatever your strengths - creativity, working with people, selling, number crunching, a knowledge of contemporary art and culture - you can be part of a passionate team.
We rely on generous volunteers to give up a few hours of their time to support our key events; like exhibition openings, parties, performances and workshops. Volunteer stewarding is a great way to get behind the scenes at all the biggest and best events of the UK Biennial. Whether you're checking invitations, providing advice or helping to keep festival visitors safe and happy, you’ll get an inside view.
Volunteering is a great chance to meet like-minded people and network across Liverpool's thriving cultural sector as the following organisations are all participating in Liverpool Biennial 2012, so you could be working within their venues or alongside their teams:
The Cunard Building, The Bluecoat, Everton Park, FACT, Liverpool One, Metal, The Monro, Open Eye Gallery, Tate Liverpool, the former Mitchells Bakery, LJMU Copperas Hill Building, The Walker Art Gallery, Victoria Gallery and Museum and The Royal Standard.
