Do you have a passion for contemporary art or education? There are many rewarding opportunities for volunteers to engage in a direct and meaningful way with the delivery and development of the Education, Events + Exhibition Programmes as well as other key areas of Parasol unit.
From assisting with hands-on art workshops to welcoming visitors, volunteers develop professional and personal skills in a collaborative and supportive environment as well as gain free entry to events.
Contact email@example.com for more information or to discuss your interest in volunteering with the foundation!
In line with the foundation’s educational mission, we encourage high-calibre applicants preferably working towards or recently graduated with a master’s degree, and who are able to commit to volunteering either two or three days of their time per week (Wednesdays and additionally volunteering on Tuesdays or Thursdays, or both); in return, the charity provides a small stipend to aid with lunch and transportation costs.
Voluntary internships at Parasol unit are an excellent way to gain experience and help with the “behind-the-scenes” administration of a not-for-profit contemporary fine art gallery and educational charity. This is an integrated role within the charity by which we support learning and professional development. All voluntary internships will include exposure to and working closely with staff across all departments.
Ideally, internships are a six-month commitment from January through June, and from July through December. We accept applications every November for the January-June internship period (interviews held early December), and applications every April for July-December internship period (interviews held early May). Please clearly state which period you are applying for on your application form.
