Want to be part of the UK’s largest queer arts and culture festival?
Want to see a range of queer performances, theatre, dance and films for free?
Want to meet new people and get hands-on practical experience working in the arts?

The time has come to rally the troops (metaphorically of course) as we prepare for our 10th year of SHOUT Festival. And we have plenty to celebrate! We’re pulling out all the stops to ensure that Birmingham is more queer than ever before. This includes a range of performances, parties, heritage and community based events as well as the amazing John Water’s flying in transatlantic to perform his critically-acclaimed show This Filthy World.

We’re looking for volunteers to help us deliver queer arts and culture to the second city and help bring the festival to life. Our volunteers are the face of the festival. And we need you!

Every year we have a fantastic crop of helpers without which the festival simply could not happen. And to continue that tradition we’re looking for reliable volunteers looking to get experience in art-based events and marketing
Roles can include:

  • Marketing,
  • Artist liaison
  • Event production
  • Stage management
  • Stewarding and welcoming audiences
