Volunteer

Do you have some spare time to volunteer? Would you like to help support free speech by giving a few hours of your time to Index?

Index has opportunities for volunteers in several areas, including staffing at events, working on our magazine archive, or helping with research.

Events
Index runs exciting events throughout the year – from panel discussions with distinguished authors and thinkers to gala fundraising evenings to our annual Freedom of Expression Awards. Volunteers help us to staff these events, helping with everything from programmes to drinks. Click here to see a selection of our upcoming and recent events.

Archive
Index has been publishing the works of censored writers and artists for more than 40 years, and our archive of material includes writing from authors such as Vaclav Havel, Nadine Gordimer, Aung San Suu Kyi, and Salman Rushdie. We are looking for volunteers to help us archive four decades of correspondence and material for new publications.

Research
Index runs a number of campaigns on free expression each year. Recent work has included campaigns on Azerbaijan, Bahrain, art and offence and media freedom in Europe. You can help Index by offering some of your time each week to provide some research on these issues.

Youth Advisory Board

If you are able to help in any of these areas, we would love to hear from you. Email us on [email protected] about how you would like to volunteer, your experience, and the time you have available.
