Helium Arts: Call for Creative Christmas Family Event Volunteers

Helium Arts Logo


Helium Arts is Ireland’s children’s arts & health organisation. Since 2009, we have supported nearly 3,000 children, teens and their families to let their creativity shine in 11 counties across Ireland. Through our creative programmes, our award-winning organisation provides much-needed distraction and relief from the loneliness and sadness caused by life-long illness.


This Christmas, Helium Arts will be bringing our very special Creation Station to the Dublin Flea Christmas Market. Come help us spread the word about our programmes in hospitals and community settings, supporting the mental health and wellbeing of children facing lifelong medical conditions.

At Helium Arts, we believe creativity changes lives. Volunteer with us this Christmas, and help us change the lives of sick children in Ireland.

Summary of Role:

Do you have a creative flair and passion for working with children? Do you believe creativity and the arts provide a meaningful outlet for stress, anxiety and loneliness?

As a Helium Arts volunteer, you will facilitate children to take part in a creative activity, allowing them to use a range of arts & crafts materials to make their creation come to life!
You will get the chance to meet members of the public and have interesting conversations about the joy and power of creativity, encouraging them to engage with our organisation by joining our mailing list, buying our Christmas cards, making a donation or signing up to become a volunteer.

Key dates:

December 13th-16th, Dublin Flea Christmas Market, The Point Square, Dublin 1

All volunteers will be given full induction into their roles and will be supported by members of the Helium Arts team and long-term volunteers. It’s going to be a fun, creative atmosphere for all involved... We’d love to have you on board as a Helium hero for our Christmas Event!

If you are interested, please email maria@helium.ie with a CV and a brief statement about why you would like to volunteer with Helium Arts this Christmas.

Closing date: Tuesday, December 11th, 5 PM
