Volunteer | DesignPhiladelphia



We need your help to make the festival a success! DesignPhiladelphia volunteers help distribute marketing materials, get the word out about the festival using social media, support event hosts during the festival, and collect demographic information from participants during the festival. With many design organizations hosting events, two FestivalHubs, and launching design experiences, our small yet mighty staff can’t do this alone. WE NEED YOU! 

Volunteer ambassadors have the chance to connect with the design community through the Festival’s panel discussions, workshops, studio tours, exhibitions, and celebrations around the city. We’re looking for FestivalHub guides, evaluators, workshop facilitators, design + build, and more. Find out about the various opportunities to plug-in as a DesignPhiladelphia Ambassador and make the 15th DesignPhiladelphia Festival one to remember!

All volunteer ambassador questions can go to Erike De Veyra, Community Outreach and Program Manager, via email erike@philadelphiacfa.org or call at 215 569 3186 x109.
