Blast Theory volunteer Julian Hyde with associate artist Becky Edmunds

Volunteer With Us

Our volunteer programme is an opportunity for those embarking on a career in the arts to have first-hand experience of working with an artists company.

Our programme covers a wide range of activity including office administration, project management, database management, touring, archiving, marketing and publicity. At times you will also be required to assist the artists on creative project development and realisation. An important aspect of the volunteer programme is developing networks and new contacts and our staff are happy to provide advice on career directions and options.

Blast Theory usually work with volunteers on specific projects in development and give clear areas of responsibility and focus. Volunteers become a part of the Blast Theory team and our volunteers should be good at both working in a team and working independently. We also appreciate volunteers who work hard and who have a keen eye for detail.

Usually volunteers work with us for a minimum of one month and a maximum of three months. A small daily stipend is paid to volunteers to cover travel and other expenses.

We send a call out for applications each summer with a deadline of 31st August and then schedule volunteers for the next 12 months. We are no longer taking applications for 2014 but or follow us on Twitter and Facebook to make sure you don’t miss the call out next year.
