Sign up to our mailing list to receive information about volunteering for FOBI '24.

As a festival, we rely on the support of our very generous and enthusiastic volunteers. Only those willing to commit to a training session prior to the event, and a full, hands-on day representing FoBI, need apply. Be sure to let us know what your skills and interests are, and we will do our best to find a perfect fit for you at the festival. 

All volunteer roles are equally valued and integral to the success of the festival. Opportunities include: meeting and guiding schools through the festival, time keeping, exhibitor support and breaks, stage support, site maintenance, Crowd management, bar service and ticketing. 

Why Volunteer?

Being on the ground, as part of an awesome volunteer team, at a super-fun science festival, is great way to meet like-minded people. You can add it to your CV… get a free science week t-shirt… AND… we’ll feed you!

Be part of the most exciting, single-venue science event on Tasmania’s calendar.  


Festival of Bright Ideas acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita/ Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honor the achievements of the palawa people as Tasmania's first scientists and engineers, living and working sustainably on this land.
