Read about past In:Site festival volunteers’ experiences:
“Working with Craftspace at the In:Site Festival has truly been an experience to remember. Not only did it encompass elements that I have a great interest in; that being the arts and crafts sector but it also allowed for the opportunity to learn new skills and meet likeminded people.” Javerya, Events Team Member Volunteer, 2015
“Craftspace allowed me to have a starting platform in the video industry by providing me with time, patience and the ability to be creative. Their biggest asset is the support they provide, this does not necessarily mean financially, but the ability they have to give both positive and constructive feedback throughout the time I was with them.” Josh, Film Maker Volunteer, 2015
Josh has also gone on to work with us creating films for Making for Change, our developing annual Craftivism (craft and activism) focused social action training programme for young people.
“I will take away memories of lovely conversations with Craftspace staff and volunteers, flocks of pigeons flying overhead, afternoon sunshine in the trees, and unplanned philosophy session with some of the more reflective and passionate people who dropped by our tents for a chat and to join in with what we were doing.”
” It was great to meet new people and get my hands covered in ink but I have also learned a lot that will be helpful to me in my professional life, and I’m looking to sharing my experience with my team.” Anne, Events Team Member Volunteer, 2016
