Leann, the Volunteer and Projects Coordinator for York Mediale has advised that they are keen to build a network of volunteers to assist with the festival.

York Mediale is a brand new festival. We're celebrating the fact that York is a UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts, the only city in the UK with this status and one of only 13 cities worldwide.

From 27th September - 6th October we're going to shout about York's capacity for innovation, enterprise and creativity and host some of the best technologically inspired music, art and discussion.If you don't know what media art is, now's the chance to learn and if it doesn't sound like your thing, don't be put off as some of the events are happening in the most beautiful buildings in York, including the Guildhall, Holy Trinity Church and the Stained Glass Centre.

We need people just like you, friendly and enthusiastic about the city to ensure this new festival runs smoothly, why not join the festival as one of our volunteers?
