Why do you need to go to a different website to sign up for this opportunity? The Biennale of Sydney Volunteer Program is managed by the Biennale in collaboration with Eventeamwork, through a separate CERVIS system. This makes it easy for volunteers to see all shifts available. That means that, if you are registered on the Eventeamwork CERVIS system you won’t be able to log in to the Biennale CERVIS system automatically, you need to register a new profile (see link above).

Applications close on the 25th Febuary – please ensure you have registered to volunteer before this date.

Please make sure you are logged out from your Eventeamwork CERVIS account and close the Cervis window, and then follow the link to The Biennale volunteer program page.
