William Morris Gallery to hold volunteering open day

Anyone interested in joining the gallery’s volunteering team is invited to find out more at an event this Sunday

William Morris Gallery

The William Morris Gallery is holding a drop-in open day for anyone interested in joining its volunteering team on Sunday 23rd June from 10am to 1pm.

There is no need to register or pre-book to attend the drop-in open day.

Volunteers at the gallery are work both with the public and behind the scenes, and help to care for and promote the gallery’s world-class collection of objects.

There are various volunteer roles including activities and events volunteers who help to prepare and supervise events while sharing their passion for art and culture with participants and front of house volunteers who welcome visitors to the gallery, invigilate exhibitions and assist with tours and conduct surveys to help the gallery understand its visitors better.

This story is published by Waltham Forest Echo, Waltham Forest's free monthly newspaper and free news website. We are a not-for-profit publication, published by a small social enterprise. We have no rich backers and rely on the support of our readers. Donate or become a supporter.

Volunteers receive free training and advice to enhance their skills.

The gallery says: “Whether you want to learn a new skill, gain experience to add to your CV or take part in something valuable for the community in your spare time, volunteering could be for you. The gallery’s volunteering programme caters for everyone from beginners to experts (aged 18 and over). You do not need to have any experience of museums and galleries to become part of the volunteer team.”

Current roles that are available are learning, marketing, events and front of house volunteer positions.
