Volunteer Interpretation Programme

FREE monthly drop-in sessions starting August 2018

Open to young people aged 14-21

Are you a future artist or curator? Curious about what goes on behind the scenes of a gallery?

Our youth Volunteer Interpretation Programme is an exciting opportunity for you to get involved with the interpretation of the Gallery as part of our Unlocking Paintings Project. You will get the chance to work with our curators to explore new ways of talking about our Collection, and develop new programmes and activities for young people. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm to get involved.
