Venture Arts would not be able to continue to offer the excellence in our work without the ongoing dedication of those people who volunteer with us. Our volunteers find the experience very rewarding and many have gone on to use their experiences in a wide range of future careers.
Venture Arts volunteers assist our team of professional artists within the studio environment. They support learning disabled people to produce high quality artwork resulting in increased wellbeing confidence, social and creative skills. Good communication, patience and enthusiasm are essential but volunteers are not required to have art skills. No prior experience is necessary, but an interest in the Arts and / or Health and Social Care is beneficial.
Volunteers at Venture Arts come from all walks of life – student, professional, creative, social care and health. Equally, volunteers choose to give their time to Venture Arts for many reasons – to gain experience in community arts, social care, psychology, education and health; for a school or university placement; as part of a volunteering scheme; or simply to spend their time doing something enjoyable in the community.
Venture Arts volunteers go through a simple application process, this helps us to make sure you get the most out of your experience.
