Become a volunteer at Juxtapose Art Fair!
Juxtapose Art Fair is a new cultural event that shines a light on galleries that are run by visual artists. Artist-run galleries are great places to discover cutting-edge art, as spaces that often show experimental artworks by new and upcoming artists. Yet many people do not know these galleries exist. At Juxtapose Art Fair we want to change that. Over the weekend we will present a series of exhibitions, talks, performances, guided tours, and other events that showcase and celebrate a wide variety of artist-run galleries and organizations from all over Denmark and Europe.
We are looking for volunteers to help with all aspects of Juxtapose Art Fair. During the fair (August 20-22, 2021), volunteers will greet guests, answer questions about the exhibitions and programs, and help with practical tasks around events and coronavirus regulations. In the week leading up to the fair (August 16-19, 2021), volunteers will welcome the participating artists as they arrive in Aarhus and help them set up their exhibitions in Godsbanen.
As a volunteer you will have a chance to learn more about this exciting part of the art world and meet dozens of artists from all over Denmark and Europe. Practical information about specific tasks and responsibilities will be provided at two information sessions held before the fair. Volunteers will also be encouraged to familiarize themselves with the fair’s full program exhibitions and activities. At the fair you will receive a free t-shirt, catalogue publication, and one complimentary meal per shift from Spiselauget restaurant in Godsbanen. All tasks will be assigned in pairs, so you will either have the opportunity to meet new people, or to volunteer together with a friend.
If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, feel free to write an email to volunteer coordinator Nina Noe at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Juxtapose Art Fair looks forward to hearing from you!
