Our volunteers come from all walks of life and are extremely important to our success. Without them Art in Healthcare’s capacity would be greatly reduced and we would not be able to do what we do.
We are fortunate to have the support of a large number of enthusiastic volunteers who help us with a range of tasks from the restoration and photography of our artworks, assisting artists in our workshops to helping at various events. We are always looking for new volunteers and welcome you to contact us if you are interested in what we do.
We regularly host university interns to help us on a variety of projects and in turn this work contributes to their course credits.
I’ve learnt about object handling, reinforced current knowledge about storage and got more practical experience of that, record keeping, basic restoration skills. It’s given me more practical confidence when dealing with artworks which will be very useful in future Art in Healthcare volunteer
