Role Descriptions

“I am about to start volunteering with an Open Arts group, and I am hoping to progress further with my own ‘art projects’. Also, there is potentially a volunteering position for a new art group for rethink that I am hoping to help out with”.

We run arts courses in visual arts, drama, music and digital art and we have a studio space for people to develop their arts practice on completion of their course.


Through all of this we have four Volunteer Roles:

· Arts Assistant assisting the Arts Tutor in preparing, running and clearing up arts sessions.

· Support Artist supporting the Arts Tutor in the planning and delivery of arts sessions – this is an advanced level from the Arts Assistant.

· Studio Assistant working at the Open Arts studio to support Studio members to develop their arts practice through independent art development.

· Exhibitions/Events Assistant helping out at project events and exhibitions, as and when projects arise.
