Skills and Experience Required

Candidates will learn how the Gallery operates, as well as acquiring retail skills and developing interpersonal skills, not least by interacting with people from different backgrounds and with different mental health conditions. They will also learn how the hospital itself operates, notably in relation to the Gallery. We organise regular cultural outings for our volunteers, as well as learning opportunities within the Museum (how the archiving process works, museum and exhibition tours etc.). We will also be looking at organising more social events, Covid permitting.
