Merge Festival needs volunteers!

Bankside and You Opportunity
Help bring Bankside's annual arts festival to life

Merge Festival is an annual arts festival which takes place in Bankside (18 Sept – 19 Oct) and is curated by Illuminate Productions. Illuminate Productions’ is a not-for-profit curatorial organisation to provide a platform for artists. We open up London’s lost buildings before their regeneration, enabling artists to work in unusual and challenging contexts.  The artists involved are both emergent British artists and established international artists.  Working together Illuminate Productions aims to create an exciting art experience that will open the way for discussion and fresh debate about contemporary art. These projects not only benefit the artists and musicians involved but have a direct impact on the local community.

Illuminate Productions is a not-for-profit art organisation creating large scale outdoor public art exhibitions that require months of organising.
