Paint Out 2015 Volunteers by Matt Dartford


Call for Volunteers to help with Paint Out Art Festival

Paint Out is once again calling for volunteers to be a part of its multi-day art festival in Norwich as well as at other one-day Paint Outs around East Anglia. We were so appreciative of the 20+ volunteers that assisted the artists and exhibition visitors in previous years and we’re hoping that students, community, art and event lovers will want to get involved again this year.

Volunteers are needed to help guide members of the public and assist the artists on location, as well as support and staff the exhibition.

The 2018 event takes place from  13-28 October in Norwich,  and availability need only be for a day or 2-4hrs within that period. 

Volunteering opportunities exist for morning, afternoon, evening, or full-days. There will be a welcome event, thank you gifts, and a chance to interact with the art and artists. We are also looking for hosts who can put up an artist in Norwich 13-17 Oct, for a small nightly fee.

The Social Media and CV website LinkedIn allows you to add Volunteering Experience to your online curriculum, job and career history, citing the fact that:

“1 in 5 managers hired someone because of their volunteer experience”

Paint Out offers an enjoyable opportunity to assist and observe the dozens of artists and hundreds of artworks being made during the competition.

“We aim to provide easy opportunities for people to gain experience with the arts. It’s a great way to be involved, have a great day out, and learn about the history of the arts in Norfolk.”

Members of the public, who are interested in volunteering and would like further information on how to be involved, you can join the volunteers Facebook group, contact the team at or fill in the form below:
