Stockton International Riverside Festival – BMBF Correspondent 2024


FOR AGES 14-19 (UP TO 25 WITH S.E.N)

Stockton International Riverside Festival returns from Friday the 2nd of August – Sunday the 4th of August 2024!

Boasting some of the best artists and performers from across the world, SIRF brings magical and exciting performances, stunning visual experiences, daring dance, live music, circus and more.

Throughout the Festival weekend, BMBF aims to capture all things SIRF and share them on our social media feeds! As a group, we have the mission of trying to capture all the acts,  from the perspective of a young person living in Stockton-on-Tees.

Pictures, videos, blogs and having one-to-one interviews with all the acts build up our portfolio to give you a little bit more of that SIRF magic. You will have direct access to our social media platforms and have the freedom to post what you want to showcase.

You will be working in shifts throughout the weekend, that you can chose, with other young people from the borough. If you have friends that are interested, join the same shifts; but be quick, it will be first come first serve!

  • Taking photos, videos and interviewing acts that perform at the festival. We want to give you the freedom to be as creative as you want!
  • Post directly to our social media platforms.
  • Get involved with the festival wherever you can, from checking out SIRF Green to putting your hand up as a guest volunteer for a show! (don’t worry we wont force you hehe)
  • Working as a team to cover scheduled shows, ensuring you get the best views for the people watching at home.

While it is brilliant to bring skills with you, we aim to help you develop the ones you have and develop new ones while you volunteer with us.

Skills such as:

  • Social media management
  • Photography/Videography
  • Creative Writing
  • Team working
  • Time management
  • Interviewing skills

We are looking for enthusiastic young people with a passion for the arts, social media and all things creative. You will be required to work in a team of other young people so teamworking skills will be required.

You must be ages 14-19 (up to 25 with Special Educational Needs) and live, study or work in Stockton-on-Tees Borough to volunteer.

All travel expenses will be paid for with receipts and you will be given an allowance for food on the days you volunteer.
