There are numerous way you can donate your time to us through volunteering activities:
Help out in our centrally located Brighton office ensuring we can deliver a smooth running service to our service users; creating online galleries for artists/writers on the Creative Future website, entering data, scanning artwork, sending out brochures etc. You may work alongside an artist who needs support with using the computer so you need to be confident with the computer.
Creative Future delivers two high profile events: the Creative Future Literary Awards and the Tight Modern art exhibition. We also put up smaller exhibitions in cafes, offices and community centres. If you volunteer to be part of our event delivery team you will be helping us deliver these events; framing work, hanging pictures, creating signage etc.
Marketing and Promotion
At Creative Future we are always looking for ways to promote the artists and writers we work with. As a marketing and promotion volunteer you will be helping highlight the work of the organisation and promote those we work with. This could involve: researching potential sponsors, promoting our work to local businesses, sending out publicity. You will need good communication and IT skills and can do this work from our offices or your home.
Would you like experience working directly with an artist or writer, helping them upload their work to websites? As an artist assistant you will need to be good with people, reliable and interested in art or writing and have some knowledge of computers, as most of this work will take place at a computer.
