As a registered charity, we rely on the help of volunteers to help us achieve our aims. In return, we are committed to supporting our volunteers to achieve theirs.

That’s why our volunteer roles have proper job descriptions, and why we are always happy to discuss your goals and aims before you start. Whether you want to take your first steps into a creative career, or want to give a little of your free time to supporting culture in the city, we want to hear from you. 

We will supply you with training, with guidance and with support; in return, you will help us continue to make the gallery a welcoming, enjoyable place to visit, and learn new skills as part of a friendly and knowledgeable team.

And remember, you don’t need to be a contemporary art virtuoso to volunteer with us; what is far more important is that you are enthusiastic about culture, whatever your age, your experience or your background.
