“ART MARKET BUDAPEST was a well-known event for me; I had visited the fair several times before. When I saw the announcement, it was self-evident that I would apply for the volunteer program. I helped the work of the organisers mainly as a booth assistant during the fair – I loved those few days! To take part in such a monumental event, organized by the best team ever, and to see how it works behind the scenes was incredible! I hope it wasn’t for the last time!”

“I am very grateful to the team members of ART MARKET BUDAPEST for letting me participate in their 2018 event. Our team of enthusiastic young individuals had the opportunity to challenge ourselves in many tasks and situations, and the fair is a great place to build relationships and to get to know the exciting world of art. Thanks to my voluntary work at ART MARKET BUDAPEST I could find a job very quickly in the field of art and PR. I can only recommend it!”

“I used to be a volunteer at ART MARKET BUDAPEST for three years. I really enjoyed the diversified tasks, and liked the work with the flexible and dynamic team. During the volunteer program I had a chance to gain a deeper insight into the contemporary art world, and fulfilled event organizating and communicational tasks as well. In my current work I can use all my previous experience from the art fair, benefiting greatly from the various aspects of participating in international event of this size.”
