Volunteer with
Generations in Jazz

Volunteering & Community Engagement 

GIJ is our largest local community event and it is the community too, who help ensure the festival’s sustainability. The success of the Generations in Jazz Festival in encouraging and supporting young musicians and Jazz music owes much to its highly valued pool of volunteers.

From its inception, Generations in Jazz has been generously supported, run and organised primarily by volunteers. A reason for the long-term success of the festival is that it is deeply embedded in community.

It is through the generous contributions and incredible impact from both individuals and the community at large that has made Generations what it is today.
