Volunteer at BDF 2020

Who can volunteer?

If you’re over 18 and have an interest in supporting the festival and creative events in Birmingham then volunteering is definitely for you.

We see volunteering as a great opportunity for students but equally this gig is for anyone who wants to be involved and has a good work ethic.

Call for entries

How can you be a part of the BDF 2021.

Exhibitions & installations

We’ve got a bit of time until BDF 2021 and we’d love to talk about brining more exhibitions and installations into the programme.

Get in touch if you have an idea or a finished piece that can be delivered at BDF 2021 and we can get the conversations going.

Speaking at BDF 2021

We’re busy planning for BDF 2020, but it’s not too early to get in touch about the festival in 2021.

If you’ve got a strong idea for a talk drop us an email to discuss it.

Official call for entries being in early 2021.

Hosting a workshop

Though we’re currently planning for 2020 we’re happy to chat about a workshop idea for 2021.

Get in touch via email to discuss and we’ll see if we can make it happen.
