Sydney Festival 2016

Sydney Festival 2016

Event Dates: 7 – 26 January 2016

Location: Sydney CBD & Parramatta

Every January, Sydney Festival enlivens and transforms Sydney with a bold cultural celebration based on the highest quality art and big ideas.

The program is kaleidoscopic in its diversity, from burlesque circus to Chicago rap to Dutch theatre; from contemporary dance to family programs to traditional Indigenous arts practice. In all, the program comprises around 370 performances and around 100 events performed by over 700 artists in more than 30 venues each year. Inclusive programming, a broad range of free events and accessible pricing policies for the ticketed shows means that Sydney Festival is open to all, welcoming Sydneysiders and visitors from wherever they live.

The 2016 Festival will mark the festival’s 40th anniversary. See what 2016 has in store – read more about it on the Sydney Festival website www.sydneyfestival.org.au

Why do you need to go to a different website to sign up for this opportunity? The Sydney Festival Volunteer Program is managed by Eventeamwork but through a separate CERVIS system. This makes it nice and easy for volunteers to see the Sydney Festival shifts. That means that if you are registered on the Eventeamwork CERVIS system you won’t be able to log in to the Sydney Festival CERVIS system automatically, you need to register a new profile. Please make sure you are logged out from your Eventeamwork CERVIS account and close the Cervis window, then follow the link to Sydney Festival Volunteering.
