Every year we have a host of volunteers to help make the Mela a success. Volunteering at Ola Sandwell & Birmingham Mela is about helping visitors getting the most out of their time at the Mela. Of course, there are exciting benefits, like getting to see the performances and meeting some of the talent.

But the real benefits of volunteering aren’t things – they’re the experiences. You will be gaining valuable experiences in the arts, working on an outdoor event, involved in the day to day designing and planning of events, liaising with clients, artists and visitors, not to mention making new friends with a shared passion for South Asian arts.

If you have a can-do attitude, are happy to work as part of a team, open to meeting people and doing some hard work, then we want you! You will need to be available for meetings from the beginning of March and the event itself is two days from 20 to 21 July 2019. So, if you’re ready for a one-of-a-kind experience, and want to apply to join us, please email: info@birminghammela.com
