Volunteer Interpretation Programme

FREE drop-in taster sessions running in January

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 in January 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.

To book a place email creatives@dulwichpicturegallery.org.uk or call 020 8299 8753
