Art Décor — Festival Volunteers

As part of the Art Décor team, we create the ambience for the festival with our creative and natural interventions based on the Buddhist theme and our imagination. Using as many natural materials found in the environment along with basic materials, wire, string, water-based glues, clay, wool, wood, paint etc.

This year we are looking for sculptors, craft workers, willow weavers, 3D or land artists to add to our creative team. Please indicate what skills you have in your application. There is limited space as it is such a desirable team to be on.

As well as working a full day, there is also space for dharma study, meditation, ritual, fireside sitting, singing and games, and each day we will have a group check-in to start the morning. We grow and build a team over the days, through working and living together, contributing not just to the practical side of building a festival, but to creating the Buddhafield community for everyone.

We ask that you come and be with us 7th or 8th-20th July in your vehicle or tent, or under your tarp, and bring your ideas, energy, generosity, creative skills, physical labour and your brightness. In return we offer

  • your ticket to the festival
  • 3 meals a day, plus hot drinks/some snacks, for the time you are on site.
  • meditation teaching and dharma input, plus experience of living in a close-knit community on the land.
  • Collaborating with a core group of other artists with experience of Buddhafield to help you feel at home.

  A Word about Alcohol and Drugs

Please have a think about our view on drink and drugs, as described on the Festival overview page.

We don’t wish to judge people’s views on this — and hope it won’t put you off applying! And if this would be a new way of experiencing a festival for you then why not give it a try?! However please bear in mind that if you choose to work with us, then we’d like this policy to be respected.
