Volunteering Opportunities at Kirkcudbright Galleries

The Trust have received a request from Dumfries and Galloway Council to post an appeal for volunteers to work in our new art gallery.  Here it is.

Volunteering Opportunities at Kirkcudbright Galleries

Are you interested in engaging with our future visitors, letting them know about the wide variety of artists and artistic styles of those who made Kirkcudbrightshire their home, either in the summer months, or permanently, during the 19th and 20th centuries and up to the present day?

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping us connect our visitors to the rich artistic heritage of Kirkcudbrightshire. If you like working with people and enjoy sharing your love of our local artistic heritage, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Volunteers will be supported through free training focusing on the collections of Kirkcudbright Galleries, the temporary exhibition programme of both historic and contemporary art and the Galleries’ programme of events and activities. Volunteers will also be encouraged to develop their own particular interests and skills and to lead specialist tours or run practical art activities, to enable Kirkcudbright Galleries to further engage with our audiences.
