volunteers

DocLab is the official new media program at IDFA, exploring how the digital revolution is reshaping documentary art. As a DocLab volunteer, you will spend most of your time at the exhibition. Your responsibilities might include explaining to visitors how to use VR head sets like the Oculus Rift of Gear VR, keeping track of reservations or offering clarification on any number of projects. You will be based at the Vlaams Cultuurhuis De Brakke Grond, DocLab’s partner and home base.

Shifts
Most of the program takes place from 11am – 9pm, but you may need to arrive as early as 9am or stay as late as 11pm for your six-hour shift.

Requirements
You should be social and friendly, speak English and have no fear of technology, and affinity with new media or virtual reality is a definite plus. Please note that special technical knowledge isn’t required.

Skills
At DocLab, you can expand your knowledge of new media and virtual reality, as well as improve your social and communication skills.
