Who we look for

We seek volunteers above 16 years of age, living or staying in Wrocław before and/or during the Theatre Olympics (14 October – 13 November 2016). Your tasks and level of responsibility will depend on your availability. You can choose which tasks you want to do, related to your interests, skills and abilities. As we want our volunteers to take active part in organising the Olympics with us, we prize independence, enthusiasm and resourcefulness.

What you can do

Volunteers will be organised into teams carrying out their tasks at the festival office, the press office, in publicity and public relations, at information desks, as ushers, looking after Polish and international guests and completing special tasks – providing support at events such as discussions, workshops, film screenings, conferences, etc.

If you want to be part of a specific team, indicate it in your questionnaire, providing reasons. Those of you who are open to diverse challenges can join a number of groups at the same time or different groups at different times.

What you gain

• Skills – we will share our experience, knowledge and skills with you
• Gratitude – ours, the festival artists’ and audiences’
• Free admission to Theatre Olympics events (provided there are free seats available)
• An opportunity to continue as a volunteer of the Grotowski Institute

• A volunteer certificate and, if required, a letter of recommendation to attest the quality of your work, your attitude and professional predisposition
• Discounts to buy the Grotowski Institute’s publications
