Liverpool Biennial is the UK biennial of contemporary art. Taking place every two years across the city in public spaces, galleries, museums and online, the Biennial commissions artists from around the world to make and present work in the context of Liverpool. Liverpool Biennial 2018 takes place from 14 July – 28 October.

We are currently looking for  Volunteers.

Follow us on social media and subscribe to our monthly newsletter to be the first to hear about upcoming vacancies. We are committed to promoting equal opportunities and welcome applications from all sections of the community.


Would you like to engage with art in new ways, meet like-minded people and gain new skills? Then consider joining our valued team of enthusiastic volunteers and be part of the UK’s largest festival of contemporary art. By getting involved with our volunteer programme you will get to participate in The City is a School, our contemporary art learning platform, work with art professionals and gain valuable experience in the field of contemporary art.

Volunteers will be needed at various times between 15 June and 28 October 2018. We would love it if you could volunteer on a regular basis, but if you can only commit to a couple of volunteering sessions we would still be delighted. All volunteers will be reimbursed for their travel to and from the Biennial and other relevant expenses.

Our next Volunteer induction session will be on  Friday 28 September (2–3.30pm) at Baltic Creative, 49 Jamaica Street, Liverpool L1 0AF. Come along and find out more – we will be on hand to answer any and all questions you may have. Please note you are not committing yourself to anything by attending, and volunteering with the Biennial should not affect any benefits you may receive.

All volunteers are welcome to participate in The City is a School, Liverpool Biennial’s contemporary art learning platform, with sessions every Tuesday evenings throughout the Biennial.
