The World Transformed
festival is happening in Liverpool again this October from 7-10th October. TWT is only made possible due to the amazing cohort of volunteers who sign up every year, and carry out key operations - from stewarding events, to running tech, to preparing food, to looking after kids in the creche!
Want to join the team? Just read the following information carefully before applying, and fill in the form as fully and accurately as possible.
1. Dates and Times
Volunteer shifts happen on the 4 days of the festival between Saturday 7th and Tuesday 10th October. Volunteers will be needed in Liverpool from Friday 6th October from midday for in-person briefings/trainings throughout the afternoon before shifts start the next morning.
You don't necessarily have to be available for the entire duration of the festival to apply (and we recognise that some of you will have work/care/other commitments), but being available for the full festival period will mean it's easier for us to accept your application and allocate you into a team.
2. Accommodation and Travel
This year TWT has budget constraints which mean that at the moment we sadly can't offer free accommodation and travel to volunteers by default though we do now have some cheap options - from selling hostel beds at cost price, to free community hall spaces for those. You can also sign up to the TWT23 Liverpool Volunteer accommodation form to find a local couch-surfing host at the same time as making this application.
If you are locally based and have spare beds/floor space, we would ask that you also sign up to host other volunteers using the same accommodation form. This will also mean we can process your application as a priority as we'll then have space for more volunteers!
3. Other Things
This year we're recruiting volunteers on a rolling basis into teams, so we will aim to contact you as soon as you can about your application, though please do bear with us as it is an extremely busy time!
Important: we ask that all volunteers respond to calls and messages promptly from TWT and your team lead, and attend all required inductions (there will be one online training in August/September and the in-person afternoon of inductions on Friday 6th October in Liverpool. You may also be asked to attend an additional meeting/training online in the lead up depending on your team).
