The Volunteer Programme provides a platform for people interesting in gaining more experience within the arts sector, we generally recruit Volunteer Gallery Assistants during the lead up to an exhibition or event.

The Volunteer Gallery Assistants role is to oversee the security of the exhibition and monitor artwork to ensure the condition and quality is maintained. To ensure the gallery space is kept clean and tidy. To welcome and engage with visitors and to record audience numbers.
