We are pleased to invite young aspiring art enthusiasts to join our volunteer programme for Art Dubai 2023.


This is your opportunity to be part of the Middle East’s leading international art fair – a celebration of art and creativity from the UAE, the Middle East and from around the world. The event takes place in Dubai at Madinat Jumeirah Conference Center between 1 – 5 March 2023. We are seeking volunteers to work with us to run the fair’s numerous activities such as exhibitions, performances, talks, workshops, press events, and to help visitors to navigate the programme.


We’d love to hear from you if you’ve got energy, passion, an appetite for the first-hand work experience, and:


  • Have excellent time management and communication skills
  • Are able to work as part of a team
  • Are flexible and dynamic
  • Want to be part of a fun, creative event


Having an interest in or knowledge of art is an added bonus, but not essential.
