Volunteering

We highly value the contribution of our volunteers, student placements and interns who assist us in the studio, gallery, stockroom and at events.

As a community organisation Arts Project is supported by an incredible team of volunteers and student placements.
– Arts Project Staff Member

By generously giving their passion, time and expertise, volunteers and interns assist our artists and are staff to continue the important work we do. Being a volunteer or intern at Arts Project offers a rewarding opportunity to learn more about what we and our artists do, see a large and diverse collection of artwork and meet new friends.

My time at Arts Project was always the highlight of my week, it strengthened my passion and knowledge of art and of people. I am so grateful for the experience. I sincerely thank you … for every opportunity where I was able to learn and smile whist at Arts Project.
