Join in and become a helper & buddy

We are looking for people who want to get involved, who are not too shy to swing a hammer or people who are outgoing to show off their city!



Are you feeling post-winter energy? Spring is really kicking in for you? Do you want to get dirty and lend a hand? Then become part of our helper programme!

We need your support to manage the renovation of the location again this year and to create a unique venue. Everything for an unforgettable ZuVi!

Every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. you are welcome to come by Jakobstraße 2 & 3 and support us.

We offer you drinks and some snacks and you can also learn something about crafts. You also get free admission to the exhibition during the festival.

As you can see, there is something for everyone!

You can just drop by, but it’s best to register with us beforehand so that we can plan for you and with you!


IMPORTANT: You are completely responsible for your own actions on our construction site. We are not liable for your bad luck or your clumsiness. (Our lawyer told us to write it that way).

If you are under 18, then of course your parents are liable for you, congratulations.

You live in Görlitz, are an open and communicative person and want to meet new people? Then become part of this year’s buddy programme.

You can be a buddy for one of our resident artists during his/her stay in Görlitz:


  • make the artists feel welcome and at home
  • show the city, with pleasure also something from the Polish side
  • be a mental support in their work
  • Document the artists’ process
  • or just go for a coffee together


True to the motto everything can, nothing must.


The residency of the artists starts one month before the

festival begins (i.e. mid-June), from then on you will be needed. As a thank you, you get free entry to the exhibition.
