We need more festival workers for our photo festival this autumn, please join our group. Everyone is welcome to join our crew, both Swedish and English speakers. You should like to work together with others, be trustworthy and service-minded. If you like art and culture and to make Uppsala a little more exciting during a weekend, then this is a perfect assignment for you. We will introduce you to the festival and the available assignments, depending on what interests you.


  • Find venues
  • Manage our outdoor exhibition "The Board".
  • Help us with sponsors
  • Manage social media platforms and update our website
  • Marketing in town by spreading flyers and posters.
  • Writing press releases, and other content.
  • Translate and prepare texts for our festival guide
  • Prepare venues for exhibitions
  • Hang exhibitions

We need people who likes to work both on their own and in teams. You do not need to be a photographer to be a part of the group, it is more important that you like to arrange things, to do both small and bigger things. You can either be a doer or a person who likes to be responsible for a bigger part of the festival.

Just ask if you have questions.
