This year, like last year, the festival will take on a hybrid model, featuring both in-person and online events. This year there will be boat tours, bus tours and the return of limited building tours. We’re looking for visitor facing roles such as stewards, information hub attendants, and tour guides.Volunteering for OHD is for everyone who loves their city and wants to get involved. This year, getting involved is a great chance to reconnect with the city as it begins to reopen fully and meet new and fellow like minded people. 

Thankfully, this year we are in a better position in terms of restrictions. We hope to be able to provide special tour opportunities to our volunteers and, circumstances permitting, throw a party for our volunteers in honour of their contribution. 

As well, architects don’t forget, you can claim CPD points when you volunteer with OHD!

To volunteer just press apply here and we’ll be in touch soon! Feel free to let your family and friends know about this opportunity.
