Horst is and has always been the sum of its people. Many people have helped shape Horst into what it stands for today and still put in all their energy for building a better Horst every year. Horst grew out of the engagement of a team of volunteers. With over 500 volunteers every year, voluntary work still remains an integral part of our organization. Otherwise it simply wouldn't be possible to realize such a project.
Volunteers can get involved in various teams before, during and after the Exhibition and Festival. Depending on your motivation and availability, you can help out for only one day or up to two weeks. During your time on site you’ll learn about Horst from the inside out, sharpen your skills and meet like minded peers from around the world.
