The Colombo Art Biennale (CAB) is seeking enthusiastic, hospitable and motivated volunteer helpers who are keen to take a closer look behind the scenes of a multifaceted art festival, ‘Becoming’, and possibly want to explore the possibilities of working in the art industry.
Amongst other tasks the volunteers will get an inside view into the workings of an art biennale by helping in the following areas:
– Learn the stories behind the exhibited art from our international curators and share them by leading tours at our 3 main venues
– Get to know the participating artists and help them display their art optimally at the exhibition venues
– Meet our international artists, help them find their way around Colombo with Sri Lankan hospitality and be part of their production process by assisting them in finding the necessary materials to implement their installations.
– Be a photography or film volunteer and take the chance to cover the variety of CAB events, artists and visitors from grungy warehouses to gallery chic.
– Represent the Art Biennale team at the Art Talks, Dinners and Parties that will be held at venues around town in the afternoons and nights of the CAB 2012.
– Run the box office and welcome and inform visitors at the central venue Park Street Mews
If you are interested in being part of the Colombo Art Biennale 2012 – “Becoming”, please kindly apply with a brief CV, mail of motivation and your availability to: firstname.lastname@example.org before the 10th of January 2012.
