Front of House Volunteer with Fabrica


About this volunteering opportunity

The main focus of the Front of House Volunteer role at Fabrica is invigilating exhibitions when we are open to the public. The volunteers work with the Volunteer Coordinators and fellow volunteers to greet visitors into the gallery, maintain the Front of House tasks and communicate the ideas of the artwork to the public.

There are also further opportunities relating to each exhibition:
- Installing and de-rigging exhibitions
- producing the Research and Interpretation folders
- producing the volunteer Response Magazine
- Volunteer-led workshops in the gallery
