The volunteers are the life and soul of Lucca Biennale, which couldn't take place without them.
Being a volunteer at the Biennale means being involved in the organizing activities according to the necessity, but it also means a professional and personal growth, an opportunity to get to know art and those behind it, to make friends and contacts that will go beyond the conclusion of the Biennale as working experiences, along with having an incredible summer in the wonderful city of Lucca.
To take part in volunteer activities, we require that you've completed higher education, that you're over 18, that you speak Italian other than your foreign language, and that you're driven by a love for culture and new experiences.
Lucca Biennale offers the possibility to implement your passion for art and culture. Join the Lucca Biennale team now!
"I met really interesting people, it was stimulating and I had the opportunity to put myself out there in a new experience, such as cultural mediation."
"I fell in love with your project, with the idea of uniting tradition and innovation thanks to local resources, focusing on ethics, sustainability and content. I fell in love with your audience: attentive visitors, sensitive and open to listening and engaging."
"Being a Cartasia volunteer means entering an International art Biennale and slowly understanding how it works, its mechanisms, and finally being able to say, after a deep breath: "I was also part of it."
