Decorators: Transform spaces through your knack for decoration. Your keen eye for detail will help curate environments that resonate with our audience. Time Commitments: We understand that our volunteers lead busy lives themselves, so we are more than happy for flexible attendance at our programmes; however, we ask that volunteers consider our staff's time and inform them promptly if the agreed times need to change. We will hold one regular volunteer day per week starting in April 2023. This will be on a Thursday from 11.00 to 16.00 . Hardware and Software: For all physical tasks we are also happy to provide all materials needed for each specific job. All digital volunteering work can be done on our computers using our licensed software; however, if volunteers wish to bring in their laptops and software, we are certainly not opposed to this. The software we use for this work is Ableton live, Resolume Arena and Adobe creative suite.

We want this role to support us with volunteers who can lead and direct guests around the building to toilets or specific circumstances. Volunteers would also be tasked with refilling our tea urn and washing up cups before events. Time Commitments: We understand that our volunteers lead busy lives themselves, so we are more than happy for flexible attendance at our events.
