Volunteer at The Whole Picture: Rethinking diversity

Application deadline: 10am, Monday 20 November

The event will bring together around 200 educators, curators, directors, artists and other experts, through a discursive and practical programme which will include a series of plenary presentations, case studies, discussions and workshops.  Conference will take place on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 November, Hull City Hall and venues across the city, and will be accompanied by a Fringe programme on Tuesday 28, Wednesday 29 November.

Engage are looking for people who wish to volunteer alongside our small team between 29-30 November, as:

General volunteers -
To help with registration and the general running of the event, ensuring delegates have what they need and can find out where they need to go.

Digital volunteers - To take photos, possibly create short video or conduct audio interviews, and edit photos / videos for use on our website. The benefits of volunteering are:

  • A chance to meet delegates and staff, and get a first-hand insight into working in gallery education and the visual arts
  • Experience of working on an international arts conference
  • The opportunity to hear presentations, case studies, debates and take part in workshops
  • Lunch and refreshments on days worked, plus a selection of Engage publications as a thank you

* Please note: Engage are unable to cover travel or hotel costs for non-local applications; local travel may be supported by advance request.

The opportunity would particularly suit current students or recent graduates who are interested in gallery education and/or the theme of diversity. Volunteers should live locally and/or be able to get to the venues themselves.
