Art Night Open Guides
Art Night is one of London’s largest contemporary art festivals, transforming the city annually for one night. Art Night 2019 will centre on the first London Borough of Culture: Waltham Forest. The festival will explore the distinct identity and architecture of the area, highlighting its expansive market culture through a series of new commissions along and around Walthamstow High Street-Europe’s longest outdoor market-and other landmarks.
The event takes place on Saturday 22 June 2019, from 7pm until late. Some projects remain open for public view as part of the Sunday trail on 23 June 2019, with workshops and family orientated activities from 11am-6pm. Additional activations will take place in King’s Cross, encouraging audiences to enter the Art Night trail via the 24-hour Night Tube on the Victoria Line. Art Night Open, another strand of the project, offers local galleries, organisations, independent artists and curators the opportunity to take part in the festival.
Art Night Open Guides will be required to direct and assist visitors on the night of the festival, and to volunteer alongside other volunteers and Art Night staff to deliver the best possible visitor experience. Your shifts will finish whilst the event is still in progress, so you can explore the Art Night trail for yourself!
Art Night Open Guides will be part of a team at one of the Art Night Open sites, supported by an Art Night Duty Manager. Art Night Open projects are run independently of the curated projects by individuals and partner organisations, and there are often several projects taking place simultaneously on one site.
As an Art Night Open Guide you will be required to:
*Work closely with the artists and venues to ensure visitors have the best possible experience
*Create a friendly atmosphere welcoming visitors to the venue
*Give out information about the artwork or performance in your venue and help visitors plan their night using the Art Night map to direct visitors to other events nearby.
*Ensure public areas look tidy and presentable
You will be required to attend a pre-event briefing with the Art Night Front of House Manager and Curators which will take place at One Hoe Street from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday 19 June. The briefing will equip you with all the information you need, as will the festival booklet and map, and Art Night staff in your venue will always be on hand to support you. You will be informed if your application has been successful on Wednesday 12 June.
Your venue will be allocated and confirmed in advance of briefing and further details will be sent to you afterwards.
