Mansions of the Future invites you to celebrate the launch of their new 2019 – 2020 Volunteering Programme on Thursday 26 September 2019, 5 – 7pm.
Mansions of the Future is recruiting a new cohort of volunteers to support the delivery of our ambitious legacy year arts and cultural programme. With creative professional development at its core, the volunteer programme will be tailored to individual needs and all volunteers will have exclusive access to a free masterclass programme led by industry professionals.
During the launch, guests will have the opportunity to find out more about Mansions of the Future, our arts programme, the role of volunteers in supporting the delivery of different aspects of their work and the bi-monthly masterclass opportunities which will include a programme of talks, workshops, lunches and cultural day trips. There will also be a talk led by Susuana Amoah, Programmes Executive at the social justice charity: Arts Emergency.
