Volunteer With Us

This is a great opportunity to be part of a small enthusiastic team of volunteers in creating space to talk about death and dying during our annual ‘A Matter of Life and Death Festival’.

Volunteers will work as part of a small team with light and enjoyable tasks to assist in the smooth running of events including discussion groups, exhibitions and workshops. You will need to:
● Approach and engage visitors to the events to provide general support with the venue facilities
● Assist with preparation and clearing of the venues and events
● Encourage visitors to keep in touch with BrumYODO by joining our mailing list and to fill out our visitors book
● Provide a friendly welcome to visitors as they enter the venues and events

We are also looking for volunteers with special skills, for example film making, marketing and photography.

Who we are looking for?

We want volunteers who can commit to a few hours over the festival period to attend some or all of the events to be held during our busiest period from Thursday 10th May to Sunday 13th May 2018. There may also be other opportunities later in the month.

A variety of skills and experiences are welcome and we would like collaborative, engaging and enthusiastic people who can work well in a team. We need people with a willingness to travel within the local area, to attend the events and enjoy interacting and meeting with people.

The events will be held in a variety of locations across Birmingham, some of which are listed below:

The Electric Cinema
The John Lewis Community Room
The Coffin Works
The Library of Birmingham
The Stirchley Baths

Training and support
You will be invited to attend an introductory meeting with the other BrumYODO volunteers to find out more about the events and to discuss your availability. Support is available throughout your time volunteering with us by the BrumYODO committee team.
