Public Art (Now) Bursaries – Seeking emerging writers

Could this be reported by you? We’re offering four £150 bursaries to support emerging writers. Attend and report from either Theaster Gates’ performance lecture at St Georges on Saturday 31st October, or our Public Art (Now) Masterclass workshop on Wednesday 18th November.

Sanctum Host

Volunteer position

We’re offering a unique chance to be part of a one time only public artwork in the city of Bristol. Witness the production of a grand-scale structure as it rises from the ruins, gain insight into technical set up of the inner sanctum stage, and experience the intricacies involved in programming a mammoth 24 day-long sound schedule. We want you to be part of the Sanctum story and join the team as a Sanctum Host.

Art Weekender Ambassador

Volunteer position

We are seeking enthusiastic and committed volunteers to be part of our Ambassador Team for the Art Weekender: Bristol and Bath. Full training given and no experience necessary, just a passion for communicating and engaging visitors in the arts. The experience is rewarding, interesting and a lot of fun and there are also a number of benefits in return for being involved which include accredited World Host training, arts goodie bags and opportunities to meet experienced curators and producers. Many of our Ambassadors from 2014 have gone on to to achieve fantastic things, many now in paid positions for the organisations they volunteered for.
