Join the Team - Art Assistant Wanted

Art Assistant Role Profile 

Supernormal is an independent alternative festival organised by a small, friendly team of enthusiastic individuals who help bring it all together. Everyone involved in the festival, from the management to the stewards, is a volunteer and we see it that everyone is as important as each other. 

Volunteer roles at Supernormal are hands-on, quite demanding and a lot of fun! As an alternative festival it attracts an eccentric clientele, both in performances and the audience and as such, we are always on the lookout for dynamic volunteers that reflect the innovative and progressive perspective of the festival. 

Supernormal is run by what we see as an extended team which includes the core crew and all volunteers. Volunteers are the interface of the event and its direct representative to the public and artists. Team spirit and a can-do attitude are the ethos of the festival and it’s essential that volunteers have and are able to demonstrate these attributes. 

Supernormal Volunteers are expected to embody the Supernormal principles and values of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in all activities, and to actively promote equality of opportunity wherever possible and be responsible for your own health and safety and that of your colleagues.
