“In the midst of ongoing workshops and the mass arrival of participating writers and local and foreign media were Indonesian and other volunteers from many countries – distinguishable by name tags fluttering about their necks in a variety of colours – who manned their stations, welcoming all. These are the members of the UWRF Volunteer Corp and the many shoulders upon which the Festival’s smooth running and thus its ultimate success rests.” (Chisato Hara, The Jakarta Post).

Our volunteers are always an important part of our Festival family, and a virtual Festival needs virtual volunteers.

No matter where you are, you can help us to deliver a world-class event  from the comfort of your own home.
