Calling All! Summer volunteer programme at Project Arts Centre, Dublin

This summer, Project Arts centre is offering a place to work in exchange for volunteering as “Conjurers” in our Visual Arts exhibition Conjuring for Beginners. Conjurers will take on the role of Visual Arts mediators, giving tours and informal talks. This is a great opportunity for artists, curators, students, writers, cultural workers and anyone else who may be interested, to be closely involved in a major Summer exhibition programme. Additional benefits include:

● Working within an established, vibrant, artist-centred organisation in the cultural hub of Temple Bar, Dublin

● Building in-depth knowledge of internationally positioned contemporary art practices

● Developing interpersonal skills within a professional environment, working closely with the Visual Arts team, in co-ordination with Project’s wider organisation and associated artists

● Mediating the exhibited artworks to the general public and communicating the wider cultural activities of Dublin city

● Training and support from Project’s Visual Arts team

● Working directly with professional artists and their work, potentially gaining in-house experience within artists’ studios

● Free entrance to special selected events taking place across the summer and beyond

● A selection of Project Press publications

● Opportunities for volunteering at future Project Arts Centre events and exhibitions running throughout 2012-2013

● free coffee, Wi-Fi and the use of our Bookshop as a research/reading resource

If you want to know more and will be available to volunteer for a minimum of 4 hrs each week, between 2 July and 11 August, please contact Rachael Gilbourne/Kate Strain at Project on 01 8819613, or at gallery@projectartscentre.ie , or find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/PACVisualArts

The volunteer programme will run throughout the exhibition Conjuring for Beginners from July 2 – August 11, 2012, Mon – Sat from 11am – 7pm. The summer volunteer programme aims to facilitate equal exchanges of in-kind support between arts workers and Project Arts Centre, and facilitate informal learning within the context of professional creative practice.
