Volunteer - Vivid Sydney at Chatswood 2019

Are you friendly, outgoing and looking to volunteer at an exciting event? Volunteers not only make Vivid Sydney at Chatswood possible, but volunteering is a fantastic way to contribute to your community, gain experience and make friends whilst you do it! If you are enthusiastic, reliable and enjoy talking to people, then we would love to hear from you. 

This year we have opportunities for volunteers to assist with the Vivid Ideas at Chatswood Chase talks during the day and the Vivid Sydney at Chatswood precinct in the evening.  Both of these roles are busy, exciting and offer the chance to really get involved in the biggest festival of light, music and ideas in the Southern Hemisphere.
