Gain valuable practical experience of working in a gallery and add to your CV by volunteering for Studio 3 Gallery. Meet artists, art dealers, collectors and curators and create opportunities for a career in the art world.

There are many tasks involved in planning and putting on exhibitions from leafleting and poster distribution to educational outreach work and fundraising. If you are interested in a career in the visual arts – whether in arts management, marketing, fundraising, curating or education – we need your help!

There are 3 levels in the Studio 3 volunteer scheme, each of which is awarded upon completion of a set number of hours of voluntary work (calculated on the basis of a standard 4 hour invigilation session in the gallery: 9am-1pm, 1pm-5pm).

  • Volunteer – completion of 16 hours of voluntary work (typically could involve leafleting, addressing envelopes, poster distribution, social networking etc.)
  • Invigilator – completion of 48 hours of voluntary work (typically 12 four-hour sessions of invigilation in Studio 3 maintaining security and assisting members of the public. Across the academic year this would involve invigilating about once a fortnight).
  • Intern – completion of 120 hours of voluntary work (ideal for those looking to develop skills at a higher level involving project management – e.g. developing a marketing campaign or educational programmes for schools).

Volunteer and Invigilator status will be recognized by certificate. Interns will receive a detailed report or reference.

Studio 3 is currently looking to recruit volunteers to help in the Spring Term 2011 with Shadows of the Wanderer by Ana Maria Pacheco. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Ben Thomas (bdht@kent.ac.uk) or Alan Powderly, who will be organising the invigilation schedule (ajp32@kent.ac.uk).
