Fringe wants you!
Volunteers are invaluable for Amsterdam Fringe Festival. Without them, the festival couldn’t take place. Do you want to share your enthusiasm and be part of an international theatre festival? Apply now!
During the Fringe there will be a lot going on in Amsterdam. This means we need volunteers in a lot of different places. How about working at the box office or working as a location host? Maybe you’re really good at promoting or if you’d rather work those muscles, you can help with (de)construction. There is a perfect fit for everyone! Hard time choosing? Feel free to combine!
What’s in it for you?
As a Fringe volunteer you’ll find yourself in the right place to expand your network and to add extra work experience to your resume. But most importantly: as a volunteer you will have a great time! Also, you will benefit from the following extra’s:
- Free entrance to Fringe shows (when they’re not fully booked)
- A Fringe t-shirt and canvas bag
- Entrance to exclusive Fringe parties
What do we want from you?
We expect our volunteers to work at least 2 shifts. A shift will last between 4 – 6 hours, depending on the location you are working at and the tasks assigned to you. After applying we’ll invite you for an interview in which we can discuss what you can do for the Fringe.
