What our Volunteers say...

'I have really enjoyed my time volunteering at the RBSA Gallery, I have learnt a lot about the different aspects involved in working at an art gallery. This has given me experience of carrying out creative and practical tasks, including exhibition installation, promoting the gallery and assisting during events and artist workshops. I think volunteering at the RBSA is a good opportunity for anyone who would like to learn more about working in the arts, and to gain new skills which will be useful for them in the future.'
