All the volunteers will be involved in the processes related to everyday operation of independent cultural venue. They will sell tickets before the events, distribute posters and flyers in the city (2 times per month), do the guest service (take care of the foreign artists), prepare guest room or catering for artists, help us with administration, office work, help at the café.
Other activities depend on mutual discussion and on the individual preferences, background and profile of the volunteer. They can develop their own project (activity) which makes sense and fits with our programme (for example workshop, exhibition, blog, movie, etc). In short we are looking for persons with a creative approach who will actively look for new tasks and activities.
The structure of activities depends on the season – The peak of the events is in the autumn (dance festivals, music festivals, a lot of different theatre performances and so). We also give the volunteers opportunity to take part in other projects, workshops and organizations if they are interested.
A4 – Space for Contemporary Culture is an independent, non-commercial center for contemporary culture in the center of Bratislava. It is oriented towards creation, presentation and education in present-day forms of theatre, dance, music and film, contemporary visual culture and new media art. Since its beginning, A4 has a unique position in the cultural life of the city and has managed to create a very creative and inspiring environment around itself. A4 is a proud member of the Trans Europe Halles network of independent cultural centers and Antena (network of independent cultural centres on a national level) and operates as a vital cultural node, both locally and internationally. The target group is oriented mainly towards the youth and adult audience even though there is no age limit for visitors. We have some events for families with kids (fine arts workshop for small kind, lectures for teenagers, screenings for families etc). We started already with lectures in the field of fine arts, public art, music, performance art. Since the 2004, the productivity of A4 can be proved by more than 2000 organized cultural events, presenting and initiating innovative artistic creation. Music programming is focused on cutting-edge expressions of contemporary music. There are organized own music workshops, which are open to public. A4 cinema club offers the screenings of artistic films which are usually not shown elsewhere in the region. A4 works also with young artists and volunteers and tries to develop the local scene and community.
