BAW_Bloggers_wanted_sliderWe are looking for keen writers and photographers to be part of the inaugural Bristol Art Weekender from 2 – 5 May. We want volunteer bloggers to attend some of the many programmed Weekender exhibitions and events, and to share their experiences live on the Weekender’s blog –

Rather than critical reviews, we hope that the blog will be alive with content which opens up discussion and interest in what this exciting new event has to offer. We want to hear from individuals who have an interest in the visual arts; in attending Weekender events and to report on their experience; engaging our remote audience with the Weekender online as it unfolds.

You can either report in either words, images or film – We don’t mind. All we ask is that you commit at least one morning or afternoon during the weekend, and to take on an assignment from beginning to end. From visiting a venue or site, through to coming back to the Situations studio to write-up and upload your piece within a few hours of attending.

The work our volunteers do is hugely valued by us, and we endeavour to make the experience rewarding, interesting, fun, and importantly, an education with regards to the your future careers in the arts. There are a number of benefits as part of the volunteer programme which we hope makes being part of the team worthwhile.

Join the us

If you are interested please contact Nate on before the 28th April with a small sample of your work- you will need to attend a briefing session on the 29th April.


The Weekender is produced by Situations in partnership with the city’s primary visual arts venues, artist-run initiatives and arts producers, including Antlers Gallery, Arnolfini, Bristol Festival of Ideas, Bristol Museums Galleries & Archives, Bristol Biennial, BV Studios, Field Art Projects, Future Perfect, Hand in Glove, Royal West of England Academy, Spike Island, Spike Associates, Martha King & Hannah Sullivan (The Parlour Showrooms) and Works|Projects.
