We Love Volunteers!

Our volunteers are the lifeblood of Artbox London. We simply couldn’t do what we do without the support volunteers provide.

Ways you can support us include:

At a workshop

Our workshops take place on Thursdays 10am-1pm, Fridays 10am-1pm and 2-5pm and Saturdays 10am-1pm and 2-5pm. We also run an open access studio day on Wednesdays and will be opening new groups on Thursday afternoons (2-3.30pm and 4.30-6pm). We currently need volunteers in on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Volunteers commit to 3 hours per week over a period of at least 3-6 months and provide support and friendship to the artists. We provide training and support you to get settled in the studio and welcome your ideas and energy! If you’re interested, download the application and send it to madeline@artboxlondon.org                                                                     

On a trip

We visit museums, galleries and public spaces such as the Tate Modern, the British Museum, the Royal Academy and the Barbican. The trips provide great inspiration for the artists and are a great way for them to access some of the best galleries in the world. Volunteers help to support the artists around exhibitions, encouraging artists to engage with the work and take notes in their sketchbooks.

At an exhibition

We host London based exhibitions to raise money and awareness and to socialise with Artbox London supporters and art buyers.  Our exhibitions are exciting events packed with interesting people. You can help us with loads of event roles including framing, curating and hanging the art, serving wine, collecting payments for art sales and supporting artists to engage with visitors.

Share your skills

We are enthusiastic, innovative and love to work with a diverse range of people to ensure Artbox London continues to grow.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re a photographer, designer, film maker, teacher or an IT wizard, we’d love to spend a couple of hours with you, discussing your area of expertise and hearing your suggestions on how we can develop.

Volunteering with Artbox London has been an enormously enriching experience and I have met a host of talented, inspirational people in the process. I love that I get to turn up each Saturday and do something totally different to what I do during the week. It has given me the opportunity to explore my passion for art in a way that’s both hugely rewarding and a lot of fun. When I get to start my Saturday in the studio, holding a paintbrush and dancing to Michael Jackson, I know I’m in for a good weekend!
