We are open to volunteers from different backgrounds and experiences as long as they are motivated and have an interest in culture and creativity. We are looking for 2 volunteers, and ideally, one of them would be interested to work in graphic design, photo and video production, while the other one could be a person with a completely different background such as economics or management, and could assist us with more administrative tasks. And both of them will be also involved in the organisation of our various events.
