We welcome anyone interested in developing their skills and experience across a diverse range of areas. You will meet like-minded people, interact with new technologies, learn new skills, and engage with the general public about a broad range of contemporary ideas that span the art and science fields.

Volunteers play an essential role in making The Big Anxiety come to life.

Why Volunteer with The Big Anxiety?
Our festival vision is to create opportunities for meaningful encounters that increase curiosity and empathy, decrease stigma, support neurodiversity and promote psychological and emotional well-being in our society.

On a typical shift you may find yourself assisting an artist with a live performance; handling VR headsets; participating in a workshop or talk; or guiding audiences through an exhibition. There are opportunities to gain install, marketing, programming or administrative experience too!

We are a small team with a supportive and accessible-friendly workplace. The Big Anxiety strongly encourages people with lived experience relating to mental health and/or neurodiversity to apply.

Key Information
The festival runs between 27 September – 9 November 2019, with volunteers required until the 16 November. You must be able to commit to a number of half-day, 4 hour shifts during this time. You will also need to be available to attend a compulsory training session at the UNSW Art & Design campus on 4 September 10am – 12pm.
