Get Involved


Spectra, Aberdeen’s Festival of Light, returns to the city in February 2018.

Building on the success of the event over the past few years, this year sees the festival grow out beyond Union Terrace Gardens into more city centre locations than ever before. Over the course of 4 nights, Spectra will bring the city to life showcasing light, sound and public art installations.

To deliver this ambitious festival we need your help.

Numerous volunteering opportunities are available, all of which will give you the chance to take part in one of Scotland’s most unique festivals and help us light up Aberdeen through some dark February nights.

We have three volunteer roles available and are looking for a host of enthusiastic people to fill them. These are:

Artists Assistants: Support the install/takedown of the visual arts programme

Production Assistants: Support for the Music and Conference Programme

Festival Team Member: Supporting the Live event experience

To register your interest or for more information on these roles, please email David Officer
