Volunteer – Sufi Festival



We are recruiting volunteers to provide support in different areas in the lead up to and during the festival weekend taking place on the 23rd and 24th July 2022.

A two-day festival spread across the Tramway and the Hidden Gardens, the Sufi Festival will open a door into the art and culture of Sufism, from music, poetry and theatre, to art and craft, storytelling, and ritual ceremonies of devotion. There will also be a host of talks by leading academics and Sufi scholars about the history, ideas, and relevance of Sufism in the world today, and exhibitions of Islamic artefacts.

There will be workshops for festival-goers to get hands-on in the craft of Sufi art, poetry and calligraphy. Spellbinding tales will be recounted by storytellers, poets will read verse to transport the soul, and untold spiritual dimensions of sound will be uncovered by world-class musicians, while guests will be treated to a bazaar selling traditional handicrafts and of course, food and drink from across the Islamic world.

The Sufi Festival welcomes all people of all ages, abilities, faiths, ethnicities, gender identities and mindsets to come and share in an authentic exposition of Sufism organised by practising Sufis, a cultural experience of Islamic art, culture and heritage in the heart of Scotland’s most diverse and multicultural community in the heart of Glasgow’s Southside
