Volunteer


Join Our Team!

Inspiring art and artistic practice since 1965, Camden Arts Centre is a place for seeing, making and talking about contemporary art. Our year-round programme includes an array of exhibitions, artist residencies, talks and events, school and artists’ projects, courses and off-site activities. We believe that art should be inclusive, and so, we encourage volunteers of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience to get involved.
Given that we are a registered charity and an Arts Council England (ACE) National Portfolio organisation, we rely on the generous support of volunteers and our team of 60+ Volunteer Front of House Assistants are central to the smooth running of our gallery spaces, events and programmes.

We are now recruiting for volunteers ahead of our forthcoming Summer exhibitions: Wong Ping's Heart Digger and Elizabeth Murray's Flying Bye. Volunteer Front of House Assistants work with the Team Leader Invigilator on duty to help provide security for the exhibitions and installations. They are responsible for enforcing the following Gallery rules: no touching of the artworks, no food or drink in the galleries and no running (we encourage families to hold hands). It is important that Volunteer Front of House Assistants are friendly but confident: you need to be vigilant as the items on display are delicate and even clean hands can cause damage.

We are keen to work with volunteers who have interest in contemporary art, though no previous knowledge is required. It is important that you enjoy working with visitors and that you are keen to learn more.

At Camden Arts Centre, Volunteer Front of House Assistants have several opportunities to engage in additional activities that support the centre. Volunteers can get the insider details on our exhibitions and lead Guided Tours; attend workshops hosted by Camden Arts Centre’s staff; get hands-on and help with our family workshops every Sunday; make friends and be an integral part of our creative community; meet like-minded people and share a passion for the arts.

To apply for this position, please download and complete the application form at the foot of this page and return to jennifer.hernu@camdenartscentre.org by 12pm on Sunday 23 June. Group interview sessions will be held w/c 24 June 2019.
