They will have strong knowledge and a keen interest in contemporary art, architecture and design, demonstrate professionalism and be outgoing with confidence to engage visitors and answer questions about the festival.

The Volunteer Coordinator will manage the FRONT Line volunteer database and its members. In this role, the Volunteer Coordinator will take the lead as the liaison between the volunteers, the FRONT team and our exhibition partners, to provide volunteer assistance for the Triennial. Requests for assistance at events, programs, project site locations and exhibition venues will be facilitated by this individual. The Volunteer Coordinator will become familiar with all volunteers in order to create and manage schedules and fill each needed position.
