Our volunteering program gives you the opportunity to join our festival crew on a voluntary basis.

Due to legal compliance, all attendees of the program will be registered for minor employment and receive insurance.
Generally speaking, you can apply for volunteering all year round. The application deadline for Fifteen Seconds Festival 2020 is the end of May. The principle of first-come, first-served applies.
We’ve got you covered regarding drinks and food at the festival venue, but we don’t cover travel and accommodation. We’re happy to connect you with our partner hotels for discount rates. You can also connect with volunteers from Graz to get a free sleeping place.
Our crew manager Kathrin will provide you with all relevant information via email beforehand. The official kick-off meeting with the entire crew attending will take place on Sunday before the festival. At this meeting, all open questions will be answered, and you will receive hands-on training for the festival.
According to your festival schedule, we will enable you to attend several talks to make sure you get your fair share of inspiration and knowledge transfer.
