Women of the World - WOW is a global festival where people of all ages and backgrounds celebrate the achievements of women and girls but also examine the obstacles that prevent them from achieving their full potential and contributing to the world. The festival is bold and broad-based in its approach, both lively and thoughtful, and feeds the demand to discuss anything and everything.

The volunteer role at WOW Cardiff (18+)

We’re offering 10 people aged 18 and over the opportunity to take part in an 8-12 week training programme to volunteer as part of the WOW festival team in Cardiff. 

The training programmes will run for two hours each week in a city centre location. The sessions will equip the volunteer team with the festival production, event management and community engagement skills needed to ensure that the festival is a safe, well-run and successful event.

The support you’ll give as a volunteer is of huge benefit to your community and in turn, we aim to make sure that you enjoy a valuable and memorable experience at the WOW festival.

We can offer you: a chance to meet new people and make useful connections, new experiences and an opportunity to give something back to your community, an opportunity to develop new skills e.g. an introduction to British Sign Language (BSL) and an introduction to first aid and a chance to work on an internationally-renowned festival with a highly-skilled and experienced team.
