Volunteer with us

Volunteering Opportunities

We are a small team with big ambitions here at MCDC, and often rely on keen and committed volunteers when delivering events and exhibitions amongst other things.

If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please email us and tell us why you’d like to be part of the MCDC team, what area you’d like to volunteer in (e.g. exhibitions, marketing), and what sort of availability you have.

FAQ

Is volunteering at MCDC for me?

We welcome people of all ages (from 18 upwards), backgrounds and abilities. So if you’re looking to expand your CV, learn more about working in an arts organisation, or just spend some time helping out in a creative environment, get in touch. Please note that the casual volunteering and work experience placements described here are within the management office, not in our artist studios.

What sort of thing can I get involved with?

Volunteering with us could involve marketing support, exhibitions (research / installation / marketing), events (planning and delivery), outreach activities, as well as day-to-day arts administration. Tell us what you’d like to learn and we can tailor your experience.

What can MCDC do for me?

We can offer experience in a range of tasks required to work in an arts organisation, distinct projects that you can complete and add to your c.v. / portfolio, and a supportive working environment.

I’m an aspiring artist / maker. Can I do work experience within the studios?

Some of our makers are able to offer work experience placements. Contact makers directly to find out more (please note that our studios are independent businesses run by busy sole-traders. Not all makers are able to offer work experience.) Work experience placements will be advertised on our latest news page.

What do we look for?

We’re after keen, dedicated, and enthusiastic people who want to get involved with an ambitious organisation. If that sounds like you, get in touch!
