Volunteer for Artichoke

Artichoke's projects almost always involve local volunteers working alongside the professional artists, crew, and production team.

We'll soon be looking for volunteers to help us make our exciting plans, including Lumiere in Durham in 2013, a reality. If you're interested in volunteering on our projects, sign up to our mailing list or email Susie


Volunteering for Artichoke

Volunteering at Artichoke's events is always a lot of fun and gives a unique insight into producing large scale outdoor events but don't just take our word for it, here's what past volunteers have to say.

'a wonderful experience…The memories will last a lifetime.' Dining with Alice volunteer

'I really enjoyed the whole experience and loved meeting new people. It was really handy for my personal statement for further education.' Chloe, 17

"Artichoke's street-art and street-theatre projects really are the stuff inspiration and excitement are made of - to volunteer for them is a privilege!" Mel, LUMIERE volunteer.

"I felt that the volunteers added to the audiences' enjoyment of the whole event...I felt very valued as a volunteer." Peace Camp volunteer
