Almost 600 volunteers supported the Galway International Arts Festival team in 2017, breaking all previous volunteer recruitment records.
The volunteers came from all four corners of the globe, from Korea to Australia, and from Canada to South America.
In addition to helping transform the city for 14 exceptional days, engaging attendees and greeting national and international visitors, 150 volunteers also assisted on one of the Festival's most exciting free outdoor street events, The People Build.
This dramatic endeavour transformed one of Galway’s landmark locations, creating an incredible cardboard building – inspired by the Aula Maxima in NUI Galway - which rose up into the Eyre Square skyline.
