In 2015, FutureEverything celebrates its 20th anniversary. For the second year we host the FutureEverything Conference in the magnificent neo-gothic surroundings of Manchester Town Hall, and we continue a large scale artistic partnership with the Royal Northern College of Music with a co-curated programme of installations, performances and new commissions. The 2015 Festival will take place on the 25th – 28th February in Manchester.

FutureEverything offers a range of volunteer opportunities – to be part of festival team, help shape the event and work in a dynamic environment, gaining experience in working across art, music and conference programmes.

Our volunteers are highly valued, and play a fundamental role in the successful delivery of the festival – working on marketing, production, artist liaison, visitor experience, and other key areas.

We look for commitment and, above all, a willingness to be hands-on and be the face of FutureEverything for artists, delegates and the public. We place our volunteers at the heart of the team, working with our staff to help make the festival a great success. We welcome you to give as much or as little time as you can – we really can’t do it without you.

In return for your time, we ensure that all volunteers receive great experience and support, various free tickets to music, art and conference events, a souvenir t-shirt, networking opportunities and a pathway to training and development programmes, with support from FutureEverything. Recent volunteers have gone on to work in various positions within the arts, culture, academia and more, in areas such as marketing, production and curation.
