Due to the high volume of volunteers that have joined us recently we regret to inform you that we have reached capacity therefore we will not be taking on volunteers at present. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list please contact us on info@mansionsofthefuture.orgor join our mailing list for updates and further opportunities.

Mansions of the Future’s Volunteer Programme provides a platform for people of all beliefs, cultures and backgrounds to hone their skills and play an important part in the daily operation of our ambitious and interdisciplinary 2019 – 2020 arts & cultural programme.

With creative professional development at its core, our volunteer programme will be tailored to individual needs and all volunteers will have exclusive access to a free bi-monthly masterclass programme, led by industry professionals. This includes a programme of talks, workshops, lunches and cultural day trips, exploring a breadth of topics relevant to Lincoln’s cultural infrastructure and the wider context in our local communities.

There is no set pathway to becoming a volunteer – everyone’s journey is different. You might be looking to meet new people, develop your skills and CV, or are simply interested in participating in something new.
