Volunteer Creative & Performing Arts Projects Abroad
Our exciting Creative & Performing Arts projects give you the opportunity to express and share your artistic talents with young people abroad. Whether you are a music student on a gap year eager to work abroad, or a career breaker with a keen interest in the arts, we have a placement that will suit you and your talents.
These projects place you in schools and communities where the arts can offer children an outlet for emotions, beliefs and dreams that they might not otherwise have means to express.
As a volunteer, you can choose between projects such as dance, drama or music. These projects are based in developing countries, including Ecuador and Senegal, where you will have the opportunity to encourage children to use and develop their artistic talents in a positive way.
While working on one of our Creative & Performing Arts projects and learning about a different culture, volunteers will receive support and guidance from our in-country staff. As a volunteer you’ll meet other volunteers from all over the world and will form part of the Projects Abroad volunteer community.
‘Music is unique in the way that anyone can experience it and benefit from it; therefore I knew that the Music project in Bolivia echoed my passion for making a positive difference via music.’
