Volunteering With Spraoi
We’d love to hear from you
Tel: 051-841808 or email Vicky Wall with your details for an application form.
You don’t necessarily have to be an artist to be involved in the arts. Hundreds of people volunteer their skills and experience to Spraoi productions, in particular at festival time. People of all ages and backgrounds bring energy and enthusiasm to Waterford Spraoi Festival and Parade. We need organisers as well as performers and prop-makers. We’d love you to have a great new experience and we will find you a role to suit your skills and schedule.
Why do they do it? We asked…
Mairead Flynn: Head Act Liasion “the best things about volunteering with Spraoi is the amazing atmosphere over the 3 days and I’ve gotten to work with and alongside some of the best international & national acts during my 10 years volunteering”
Chris Dowling: Act Liaison “being involved in Spraoi is an unforgettable experience andeach year it gets better! Growing up seeing the acts and loving the festival it just made sense to volunteer. It’s definitely one of the most rewarding experiences seeing the joy on people’s faces around Waterford and knowing that you are a part of it”
William Ryan: Area Manager: “I love being involved in the festival, I enjoy volunteering because it’s something unique, & you get front row access to all of the street theatre over the weekend. The end of the festival is the best but also the hardest because you make a huge family over the 3 days, however knowing you get to work along side them the next year makes it all worthwhile”
