Voluntary Social Year Culture

The culture office boskop offers you a varied year, as a deployment site for the VSY Culture. We can offer a place for up to two volunteers, the VSY begins on 1 September of each year.

What is the VSY Culture?

If you are enthusiastic about working in the cultural field, have fun at specific challenges and possibly aim at a career in a cultural institution or in the cultural sector - with VSY Cuture you are at the right place.

Here you can try it out, look behind the scenes of a cultural establishment and find out if you have fun at work in this professional field and its particular challenges. During the VSY Culture, for a period of one year, you will have an opportunity to be involved in a cultural institution where you may implement your own ideas.

In addition to the practical work, you will take part in totally 25 training sessions that will allow you to train yourself, try out your artistic skills and closely learn the different artistic areas. The special thing about the VSY Culture is that during this year, you will be able to plan, organize and realize your own project - just experience yourself in a new field and prove your strengths.

This is what we offer:

  • Assistance in the management of cultural events, starting from the conception, to the implementation up to the final invoicing
  • Assistance in courses and workshops
  • Assistance in public relations work
  • General office work

The future volunteers should:

  • be interested in cultural work
  • be creative, have team spirit, be open-minded, show initiative
  • have a class B driving license
  • be at least 18 years of age
  • have willingness to work at unusual times (event management)

You can expect a team of permanent employees as well as student assistants, you are offered an opportunity to gain practical experience in the cultural field and to establish first contacts. We really welcome independent ideas and the implementation of own projects!
