Interested in volunteering?

We welcome all participants to register as volunteers, aka Cultural Ambassadors. At the moment we have a limited amount of volunteer positions open. Closer to 2026, we have numerous interesting tasks opening up related to e.g. event production, communication, information, and guidance. We also organise training and own programme for volunteers.

Feel free to leave your contacts with the same form as subscribing to our newsletter. We will reach out to our network as our programme starts to take shape. Welcome aboard!
