Volunteers

To form the Open House Lisboa 2017 team, we are looking for people over 16 with an interest in architecture, in the city’s history, and that feel at ease communicating with the public.

In each past edition we have had an extraordinary team of volunteers to welcome the visitors, inform them about a particular event and other suggestions. It is this team that also tells the public in detail about the program, recreational and educational activities and parallel events.

A rare opportunity to get to know in detail each project of the itinerary, talk with the architects, authors of the spaces, and find out well-kept secrets through encounters with invited specialists. OH Lisboa is also a meeting point.

Throughout the years, we have been very lucky with our amazing teams. Some stayed with us, some created friendship bounds that lasted to this day, and others danced all night at the volunteers party. Come join us in this 6th edition. All we ask is that you are available during four or more hours during that weekend. We spoil our volunteers because they are the face of this event. Come and be an Open House insider!
