FREE drop-in taster sessions
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 young people to get involved with the interpretation of the Gallery as part of our Unlocking Paintings Project. As a volunteer you will get the opportunity to work with our curators, 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.
Come along to a taster session to find out more and sign up to become a volunteer.
Refreshments will be provided at all workshops and travel expenses can be reimbursed up to £10 for each session.
