Art seeks interaction during the Wereld van de Witte de With. Interaction with buildings, the street, inside and in public space, between the audience and the artist! For three days the Wereld van de Witte de With brings art by artists of all disciplines.
De Wereld van Witte de With festival aims to take festival-goers beyond the limitations of passively experiencing the city. Viewers become participants. De Wereld van Witte de With amazes, surprises and wrong-foots visitors, encouraging them to look at their environment with fresh eyes. The projects presented offer creative and alternative solutions to social issues, going far further than the conventions of architecture and urban design. And Witte de Withstraat is the ideal location for such inspiring projects. It’s the most vibrant street in the city – and the nexus of the city’s dynamic cultural life. All this is captured by the festival agenda, which gives people a chance to take the initiative and take action for the common good.
Every year in September the Wereld van Witte de With turns the street completely upside down. For three days the street closes for traffic and transforms into an art festival. This can only be possible with the help of a dedicated team of volunteers.
As a member of the building crew you take part in the construction of the festival and work together with an (inter)national artist to realize his project.
During the festival we are looking for friendly people that like helping the festival visitors get around. This includes informing visitors, ticket sales and helping out (inter)national artists with their projects.
For the bar we are looking for spontaneous experienced people that can create a lively atmosphere.
The festival takes place on 14,15 & 16 September. When you want to help out as a volunteer, you’re preferably available for three days in the period from 10 to 17 September. In return you will be taken care of by us, providing you with a festival T-shirt, food, drinks and of course a party!
If you are interested in joining our team of volunteers, please send an e-mail with your data, preferred position and availability to Wendy Wolf at email@example.com. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
