School over? Off to culture: Voluntary social year available at the Cultural Office of Münsterland e.V.

Support at the music festival, network with artists and implement your own projects: From September, young adults up to 27 years of age will once again have the opportunity to complete a voluntary social year (FSJ) at the Cultural Office. Exciting insights into the working world and a monthly allowance await them. Applications are open until 15 March via the Volunteer Services Culture and Education portal.

"At the beginning, I thought I would only be allowed to copy and make coffee. I realised right on the first day that this was not reality," recalls Anna-Ida Almus, a former FSJ volunteer at the Cultural Office. Jolie Drath, who completed her FSJ at the Cultural Office from September 2020 to September 2021, also says: "I have developed personally in terms of communication and openness. I learned how important it is to be active and to see new challenges as an opportunity to learn something new." What else the two have experienced and done, they tell in interviews, to be read at

"With us, FSJers can not only look into one area, but get to know art and cultural workers from many sectors," says Simone Schiffer, project manager at the cultural office of Münsterland e.V. "Together we look for their interests and strengths and support them in their own project. Anything from social media strategy to podcast is possible."

The tasks of the cultural office and thus also of the future team member include: networking, coordinating, promoting, advising people involved in art and culture, accompanying projects and campaigns with press and public relations work, maintaining the website as well as the social media channels. The future FSJ student will also be involved in the organisation of events, whether Münsterland Festival, Cultural Academy, Artists' Exchange, Regulars' Table or Literature Residence.

The FSJ lasts one year and starts on 1 September.
Interested persons can apply by 15 March at .
