Calling all Volunteers!

Volunteers are what makes this festival happen. Come help us out and contribute to the queer arts community! Volunteering is a great way to meet awesome new people, and if you’re an artist, there’s no better way to connect with local, national, and international queer audiences and colleagues. Need another reason to volunteer? All volunteers will receive an all-access rush pass for QAF events! And we throw a big party on closing night just to celebrate you!!


  • Social Media (remote): 

Do you have a few minutes each day to amplify our social media reach? Are you active on social media? Do you have Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr or even Tik-Tok accounts? We need volunteers to like and follow our social media channels and to like, share and comment on our social media posts. (FB: /qafvancouver  | Twitter: @QAFVancouver | Instagram: @QueerArts) Liking is great. Liking and sharing is better. Liking, commenting and sharing is the best, as is retweeting with your own positive comments.

  • Office Support (remote/onsite):

Do you have a passion for office supplies and organization? Are you looking to develop your administrative skill set or already a superstar with administration? Throughout the year, we can often need a hand during office hours – filing, doing data entry, labelling envelopes, and running the occasional errand. Some admin/computer experience would be helpful. 

  • Driver: 

Do you have a license ? We need people during the festival to run various errands – it could be picking up a performer from the airport, transporting food for catering, or running to the hardware store for that forgotten item. Ideally, Drivers will be able to comfortably lift 30lbs or so, but please still let us know if you’d like to drive but lifting just isn’t your thing. QAF will reimburse Drivers $0.50/km for mileage.


More volunteer positions for QAF 2021 to be announced soon! For more information email us at:
