Work With Us - Volunteer
Our volunteers play an invaluable role in making the Festival happen every year, and it’s a great opportunity to see the how the Festival works and be a part of all its exciting activities. Opportunities for volunteers include working with the box office team, welcoming audiences to events and venues, working with visiting artists, stewarding at outdoor events and helping us promote Festival events.
We have been delighted with the overwhelming response for the recruitment of volunteers and have reached our capacity for the festival this year.
We would like to thank everyone for expressing an interest in becoming a volunteer and look forward to working with them.
If you have any questions, call our Volunteer Coordinator on +353 21 421 5131, or email: email@example.com
There are no current vacancies with Cork Midsummer Festival. All upcoming vacancies will be advertised here.
Cork Midsummer Festival is a fully curated festival, which means that all Festival events are invited by the Festival Director to be part of the programme. We do not accept unsolicited submissions and do not have a submission deadline.
At certain times we may invite submissions for particular projects or strands of the programme, which will be advertised here and through the Festival's Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Please note in particular that the Festival does not book many music acts or street performances and we are unlikely to consider unsolicited applications from these kinds of groups.
Established in 1997, Cork Midsummer Festival is one of Ireland's leading international multi-disciplinary arts festivals. It is an annual festival which transforms the city of Cork every June with a programme full of local, national and international events including theatre, dance, opera, music, visual arts and outdoor arts, as well as ambitious participatory projects and an extensive programme of free events.
The Festival presents and produces ground-breaking new work by artists across all art forms. It has developed an international reputation for presenting work in unusual and surprising locations, as well as in the city’s many well-appointed arts venues. Over the past 15 years it has become a catalyst for the development of emerging arts practice in th city, presented a wide range of ambitious and acclaimed arts events across disciplines, and developed pioneering projects involving collaborations between Irish and international artists and organisations.
We are proud to acknowledge that Festival Director Tom Creed and the City of Cork were nominated for the Judges' Special Award at the Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards for 2012, “for the original and dynamic use of local spaces during the Cork Midsummer Festival”. Cork Midsummer Festival is smart and startling, and captivates a growing audience of all ages. We bring the Festival to people and parts of the city that might be hard to reach.
We bring the world to Cork – and show Cork to the world.
