Sheffield Design Week organises and promotes events across Sheffield during our action packed week with audiences made of thousands. Our small team relies on enthusiastic volunteers to support the week’s activity and help make the week a fantastic experience for visitors across a wide range of events from exhibitions to conferences.

Become a volunteer in 2016

We want to make sure that your time as a volenteer is fun and enjoyable, and where possible make sure you’re able to attend the events that interest you. As a volunteer you are an ambassador the SDW and many tasks include being a point of contact providing information and assistance, handing out guides and checking that events are running smoothly.

Capture information

By getting out and about, volunteers will get a unique perspective of SDW. We always need tweets and images from across the weeks events, fueling our social media channels. Anyone interested in design writing & photography can review exhibitions and events for our news pages.

Social Media Volunteers

We are always keen to work with volunteers who want to write, photograph or blog about the many events that happen during Sheffield Design Week. Please get in touch if you are used to blogging or social media.
