OPEN CALL: Unleash your inner volunteering beast!

Volunteer Recruitment Open Call
If you are one of those cubs who gets easily distracted by a passing piece of lint and tends to miss deadlines, why not come along to our Volunteer Recruitment Open Call on Saturday August 20 2016 at 4:30pm here at FRINGE LAB. Fill in your application there and then and learn more about volunteering!

Like the Spiegeltent – which returns for another bout of crazy, zany and eye-popping antics – Tiger Mama is back for another year in the Tiger Dublin Fringe Den and is looking for Volunteer Cubs to join his streak.

Fringe offers an amazing opportunity of self expression as well as bringing to the fore your creative side, encouraging volunteers to take on various roles throughout the festival – from front of house, production, ticketing and box office roles to social media correspondents, festival photography or artist liaison roles.

Our volunteers selflessly give their time to help run Fringe. Without their interest and support we would be unable to bring a festival of this scale and artistic scope to the public. Festivals are a great stepping stone for those interested in a career in the arts or event management. But most of all it encourages a social community that lasts far beyond the festival, growing into an all year round diverse family of festival volunteers from all ages, walks of life and backgrounds.

In previous years we have had aerial acts in trees in a city forest in the dead of night, a full brass band atop a car parking lot, Granny following Over The Top Wrestling and a stand up show involving a live horse on the streets of Dublin.  So what’s in store this year?  Only one way to find out….

Simply complete the Volunteers Application here or here and email it back to Mama by August 19 2016 or bring it along with you to the open call at 4:30pm on August 20. Any questions, comments or queries please do not hesitate to contact Tiger Mama at

Deadline for applications is Friday, August 19 2016 by 5pm sharp.
