Artlink has many opportunities for volunteers. If you would like to volunteer for Artlink workshops you will need to complete an Artworker application form. When we have received your references, you will be added to our register and will be contacted regarding opportunities. Please make it clear on your application if you only wish to volunteer on projects and do not wish to be offered paid employment. Many of our artworkers are offered volunteer opportunities to help develop their skills. Often, we ask new artworkers to volunteer on a project before they are offered paid employment, so that we can get to know them, where their skills can be best used and how we can best support them in running Artlink workshops.  Volunteer Form
