We are looking for passionate and dedicated people with an interest in the arts to get involved in Transform 19 by being part of Team Transform. This volunteer group will be vital in supporting the delivery of what will be our boldest international festival yet.

  • Shadowing and supporting the production and producing teams.
  • Stewarding events, performances and workshops.
  • Being a translator for visiting international artists.

Team Transform is a great way to meet new people, gain festival experience, and be part of bringing a major cultural event for Leeds to life.


Transform 19 runs from 26 April-4 May 2019. Volunteers must be available for at least four days within the festival period.

You will also be required to attend three or four short meetings to meet other volunteers and the festival team. The first will be on Wednesday 20 March at 5.30pm, details will follow to successful volunteer applicants.
