Help make the State of Fashion Biennale 2024 in Arnhem a success
State of Fashion is an international fashion event dedicated entirely to promoting a more sustainable and fairer fashion system. As a volunteer you can play an important role by, for example, assisting at an information and ticket point or welcoming visitors to the former Rembrandt cinema, the location where the exhibition can be visited. In addition to these tasks, there are lectures, workshops and activities in which volunteers play an active role. We offer training for some tasks to make sure you are well prepared.

Who are you?
As a volunteer at State of Fashion, you fulfill a crucial role, as the first point of contact for our visitors. You will give them a warm welcome and provide them with practical information about the exhibition. As an audience member you are the first point of contact for our public, so we ask that you are at least 18 years old and have a good command of the Dutch and/or English language. Knowledge of fashion is not required, but we do expect you to immerse yourself in the story State of Fashion and the curators want to tell: the importance of breaking through the current unsustainable fashion system and the invitation to look at fashion in a different way.

If you are excited to contribute to this and make a positive impact, then you are who we are looking for! We work with an online schedule, allowing you to choose shifts that fit your schedule.

We offer you:
You will become part of a large group of enthusiastic volunteers, guided by a volunteer coordinator and team leaders. To make sure you are well informed and inspired to get started, we organize information meetings for volunteers. During State of Fashion we will keep you informed with weekly newsletters and we will organise an exclusive preview for volunteers before the official opening! At the end of this State of Fashion we organise a nice party to thank all volunteers.

We think it is important to take good care of you. Therefore, we arrange lunch and coffee/tea during day shifts. The day always starts with a joint briefing and during your shift a team leader will be there to support you and answer any questions.

State of Fashion 2024 | Ties that Bind will take place from May 17 to June 30, 2024 in the center of Arnhem.
