We're 50


Camden Arts Centre is dedicated to developing artists, educators and people with an interest in contemporary art. Alongside our education and exhibition programme we also actively engage with volunteers, offering a unique opportunity to gain experience with individual departments across the organisation. Our Volunteer Front of House Assistants can take part in a variety of seminars, workshops, job shadowing and hands on experience, whilst gaining a valuable insight into one of London’s most popular art spaces.

Our Volunteer Front of House Assistants are extremely important to us and make a significant contribution to the smooth running of the Centre by helping to look after the exhibitions and assisting visitors in an informed and friendly manner. As the public face of Camden Arts Centre they welcome visitors and are the first point of contact between the organisation and the public. Joining Camden Arts Centre as a volunteer would ideally suit those that have an interest in the work of the Centre, enjoy interacting with the public and working as part of a team.
