The Works Art & Design Festival is the most unique, free event of its kind. It attracts artists, designers and patrons from around the world - boosting the city’s energy and imagination at the start of each summer. The 2023 Festival dates are July 7th-July 16.

This role is great for volunteers who are looking for more flexibility, developing administration skills, and are available prior to the festival dates.
