Volunteers' programme

One of the key factors for the successful implementation of  the European Capital of Culture initiative is the implementation of the volunteers' programme, which enables the involvement of people regardless of their gender, age, experience, social and ethnic background.

You can get involved in every step of the process of preparing and organizing cultural events, festivals and social projects that will be part of the European Capital of Culture project.

How can you get involved?

  • Logistics support - support for meeting guests, support before and during events.

  • Blog and marketing - work with the marketing department of Plovdiv 2019 for design, video, photography and writing.

  • Promotion - flyer distribution, support with specific skills such as graphic design, photography, video and animation, merchandising, writing texts.

  • Translations and documentation - translations of texts and documents from English into Bulgarian and vice versa; an additional language is welcome.

  • Social projects - participation in projects related to socially disadvantaged people and groups.

By joining the Plovdiv 2019 volunteers' programme, you will be able to:

  • Develop new hobbies and interests through various volunteer activities.

  • Make new friends and meet people with similar interests and ambitions.

  • Be part of the team that implements the European Capital of Culture initiative.

  • Be behind the scenes of the projects which will be implemented in 2019.

  • Spend your free time in a productive and interesting way.

  • Learn more about yourself - your talents, interests and skills.

  • Develop specific skills at which you are good and which can be of benefit to others around you.

  • Make a contribution to your community.

  • Work in a team of people with common interests and values.

  • Meet people with different or similar skills with experience from Bulgaria and abroad.

We kindly recommend you to check out some hints for working with volunteers HERE.

Here you can find a sample presentation which we had after the main opening event of Plovdiv 2019 - it gives you a snapshot of what and how we plan, implement, analyzed for the events, part of the programme. All these we discussed on our weekly volunteer meetings. 

Check here the blog of our volunteers.

During the title year, we also had a newsletter, dedicated especially to our #volunteers: February; March; April; May; June; July; August; SeptemberOctober; November, and you can download our unique edition from HERE, which tells the story of Plovdiv 2019's volunteers work and is our descriptive legacy and know-how for all future capitals of culture.
