Description

VOLUNTEERING ROLE: STAND Festival Coordinators

STAND celebrates the power of ordinary people to change the world. We support third-level students to stand up for justice and equality, learn more about important global issues, and find out what they can do to take positive action. The STAND Student Festival takes place every autumn on campuses across Ireland, to raise awareness of the burning issues shaping the world around us. The festival is run by students, for students, with support by STAND staff.

This year, the STAND Student Festival and outdoor Exhibition will spend one week at the TUD Grangegorman campus from the 1st – 5th November 2021. Central to the festival will be the installation of an outdoor exhibition, showcasing illustrated portraits of 20 changemakers from around the world who have risen up to take action for positive change.

 To maximise the impact of the STAND festival we are recruiting a team of dedicated volunteer coordinators to design and bring the festival to life at TUD. Coordinators will organise festival events based on the theme, promote the festival and monitor engagement with the STAND Exhibition.  Festival coordinators will take part in dedicated training on Wednesday 6th October, and will receive a coordinator handbook as well as continued support from STAND if and where required
