The Blast Theory volunteer programme is an opportunity for recent graduates and 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 should be good at both working in a team and working independently. We also appreciate people who work hard and who have a keen eye for detail.

The placements are for a minimum of one month and a maximum of three months. A small daily stipend is paid to cover travel and other expenses.
