Be a SIRF Correspondent…

Are you 16-20 years old?  Would you like to be an important part of this year’s Stockton International Riverside Festival as we celebrate our 30th Birthday?

If so, you could join us as part of the official SIRF team as a Volunteer SIRF Correspondent.

In return, we can offer you a once in a lifetime opportunity to contribute to SIRF17, an access all areas pass and an industry-recognised vinspired award.  You’ll need to be available between 31 July and 6 August and able to dedicate a minimum of four hours each day.  You will also receive a SIRF t-shirt and hoodie, plus your travel and lunch costs covered.

This access-all-areas role will involve you undertaking interviews with performers, producing footage for live social media streaming, providing reviews, feedback and information for press releases.  You’ll also experience what it’s like to work as part of a major festival team!
