We’re looking for enthusiastic, energetic and eager volunteers to join our team at The NewBridge Project.

The NewBridge Project is a vibrant, artist-led studio community and project space supporting artists’ practice and enabling critically engaged dialogue and writing. The volunteer programme offers a unique opportunity to work with us to deliver our exhibition programme, which supports emerging art practice by working closely with artists to develop innovative projects.

NewBridge Books is a bookshop and social space that is unique to the region in offering diverse, original and hard-to-find national and international contemporary art publications. As a social space it provides a unique context to initiate and support opportunities to exchange ideas via a programme of regular discussion groups, meetings, performances and screenings.

As a volunteer, you’ll share many of the advantages of a NewBridge Project member, joining our community of critically engaged artists, researchers and writers and accessing some of our shared spaces and facilities. In addition, there are opportunities to work with us on partner collaborations. You will also be welcome to join in with our member activities.

Volunteering at The NewBridge Project affords a unique insight into how artist-run organisations work, allowing volunteers to develop skills, networks and confidence within a supportive team.

Our current Volunteering opportunities include:

Gallery Invigilation / Event Support
Exhibition installation / Studio Maintenance

Depending on previous experience, we are also sometimes able to offer opportunities in administration, marketing and social media.

If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please download and complete the application form and email to admin@thenewbridgeproject.com and we’ll be in touch soon.
