Work with us

We are always on the look out for enthusiastic, dedicated and reliable people to play a key role in helping us make our festival the best experience possible. Our yearly team of volunteers are an amazing support and really help to make the festival what it is.

How can you get involved?

There are numerous tasks we need help with in the lead up, during and after the festival itself. This includes (but is not limited to):

  • The physical install/de-install of the festival itself
  • Delivery of the events programme: helping to run our workshops and managing the talks programme
  • Assisting visitors
  • Admin tasks
  • Exhibition assistance
  • Tickets/sales
  • Flyer distribution

Please note: due to the nature of working at a festival, we operate with an ‘all hands on deck’ approach and as such, we urge you to come with a flexible and positive outlook, and a willingness to get stuck into all tasks!

About you

We are looking for hands-on, friendly and approachable volunteers who are willing to roll their sleeves up and get stuck into all kinds of activities. You will be happy dealing with the public and have a passion for illustration and comics. Ideally you have some experience in event support, physical installation work, or running talks/workshops.

We would prefer if you could volunteer per day or half day, but please let us know your availability so that we can accommodate this. Please state your preference when writing to us.


You will receive a briefing prior to the event, which will include a walk through of the venue.  The date and time of this will be confirmed closer to the event.


We offer free entry to the festival for all three days, one special ELCAF T-shirt per volunteer, and additional goodies. On the day of the festival we will offer lunch and light refreshments. More information will be provided on sign up.
