Brainchild is an ever-growing community of people connected by shared values. Every year through the festival and our other projects, we meet and collaborate with hundreds of people, and these friendships become driving forces for our creative output. We open up opportunities to get involved all through the year, check the list below to see what’s open at the moment!

Some core things about how we bring people in to the project:

  • Our core values are: Community, Realness, Inclusion, Sustainability, Bravery, Collaboration, Development.
  • We employ a flat fee policy, which means everyone is paid the same day rate, including Senior Management.
  • We’re committed to creating a team that’s inclusive and representative of the festival’s audience & artistic community. We therefore especially welcome applications/expressions of interest from BIPOC & LGBTQIA+ communities.
  • Wherever possible, we are committed to helping you get the personal and professional development that you’re after from being involved in Brainchild.


We are not currently recruiting for any roles.
