New Programme Launching Thursday 26 September 2019!

Volunteer with us!

Mansions of the Future invites you to celebrate the launch of our new Volunteering Programme on Thursday 26th September 2019, 5 - 7pm. 

We are recruiting a new cohort of volunteers to support the delivery of our ambitious 2019-2020 arts and 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 will include 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.

During the launch, guests will have the opportunity to find out more about Mansions of the Future, our building, our arts programme and the role of volunteers in supporting the delivery of different aspects of our work.There will also be a talk led by Susuana Amoahas, Programmes Executive at the social justice charity: Arts Emergency.

Refreshments and screen printing of volunteer t-shirts from 5pm, introductions and welcome from 5.30pm.

Free and open to all. Click here to book
