Volunteer with us

Are you passionate about the arts? Do you believe in the importance of creativity in the lives of children? If you share our passion please come volunteer with us.

Become a Baboró Volunteer and help us to continue to deliver world-class creative experiences for children. We can’t do it without you.

For the past 21 years, volunteers have helped us to achieve our hopes and dreams, to inspire children to engage with the world through their experience of the arts. We have grown year on year, thanks to the generosity of people volunteering their time to us. We like to provide a rewarding volunteer experience — for some it’s an opportunity to work in a busy office environment and see how a festival operates ‘behind-the-scenes’, while for others, it’s a chance to work as part of a festival team and help bring the festival to life!

Volunteers receive many benefits from volunteering with us, read our testimonials from past volunteers:

I am really enjoying the festival. It has been a gift seeing every morning all the children smiling and singing... It's a really good festival. Congratulations!
Raul Manhaes, Volunteer, 2015
The Happy Heart Zone and Galway Arts Centre were so much fun. If the kids enjoyed it half as much as I did, it was definitely a success. I just wanted to say thank you so much for the opportunity and experience of working in both the office and hands on during the festival. I really appreciate it and hopefully when I return I can help out again.
