Schipbreukeling – Mathieu Charles

call for volunteers


Are you joining our team of volunteers among art and nature during sonsbeek20→24?

It’s going to be a beautiful summer! As a volunteer, you play an essential role in connecting the artworks and the visitors. During sonsbeek 2020 you’ll be stationed at an information point or artwork along the route. You’ll provide visitors with information about the artworks, the route and the various activities taking place.


You are welcoming and like meeting new people. You enjoy sharing stories and are passionate about art – although you don’t need to be an art connoisseur. You want to be a part of this internationally-renowned exhibition that is woven into Arnhem’s DNA. We use an online schedule. You’re able to schedule your own shifts. We ask for a minimum commitment of three days a month to ensure that you are in the know about everything that is going on.


You will become part of a large group of enthusiastic volunteers. There will be sessions with co-curators and/or artists to inform and inspire you and we will keep you up-to-date with newsletters. Before the official opening you can join our special preview!

You will experience up close how a large scale art exhibition is organized. 

We think it is really important to properly look after our volunteers and we will provide you with lunch as well as tea and coffee. We will start each day as a group and during your shift there will always be someone to answer your questions.

Sonsbeek20→24 takes place from 30 June – 31 August 2021 on different locations between Arnhem’s city center and Buitenplaats Koningsweg.

Shortly before the opening, we will be organizing a special guided tour for volunteers to provide you with abundant information about the artworks. There will also be documentation available (online) and you will receive a regular newsletter with the latest news for sonsbeek20→24 volunteers.
