Become a Dublin Fringe Fest Volunteer in 2019!

29 July 2019


Each September from platform 9 ¾ of the four provinces an army of volunteering inventors & mavericks, vocal feminists and aspiring performing giants rally as a coven from the Ministry of The Performing Arts to cast the spell of FRINGE upon the city and its muggle public.

Our Volunteer warriors and crusaders now well ingrained into the Festival Folklore– their passion and spirit are as infectious and fresh to first time performers, artists, producers and writers as when it first started back 1990’s– with their selfless commitment lending itself to the festival to showcase the best in new Irish talent and inviting over the most innovative and creative International Acts that The Arts Scene has to offer.  #FRINGEriumLeviosa

  • The Order Of The FRINGE: Volunteers like artists illuminate the otherwise invisible. They lend themselves as vessels for creative vision, they rally together to protect the sanctity of Art and journey with the audience seeking answers and voice to radical artworks and outcomes, challenging questions and adversity as well as lols and bants in far of places and quiet back rooms, mainstages and spotlights, the quiet and the brash. Volunteering and FRINGE combined becomes power: seizing it, sharing it, speaking truth to it is what each volunteer and ambassador to the art of performance permeates.
  • FRINGE Sequels & Second Comings: long exposure to such fellowships and chamber of festival secrets may lead one to becoming, as our Grand High Witch has predicted, ‘ true originals, philosopher kings, witches, feminist giants, buzzers, upstarts and luminaries-in-waiting’.  These outwardly spells and conjurings of artistic emotion and inclusion are not to be frowned upon but nurtured so they can step in and carry on the legacy. Volunteering is not a disease – it is advantageous addiction that stokes the artistic game changer in all of us.

Along with these manifestations and fantastical beasts of provocation & activism to come, why not volunteer with us, we have positions as interns, supervisors, Front of House & Ticketing Volunteers, Office Admin & Production as well as Outdoor Marshalls & Street Team vacancies.

So why not take a chance and volunteer – you never know it could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship with the Performing ‘Dark’ Arts in Dublin –#TheFellowshipOfFRINGE
