Getting Involved

We are very keen this summer for volunteers with a particular interest in exhibition installation to join our team. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in art-handing, installation and curation. We have our annual Studio Artist Show coming up this summer, as well as the Castle Prize Residency and EM17: East Midlands Graduate Project.

Surface Gallery is run by a committed group of volunteers who give their time to deliver an experimental and innovative programme of contemporary exhibitions, events and community engagement programmes.  All sorts of people volunteer for all sorts of reasons. For some, it’s a great chance to meet new people, for others, it’s to try something new or gain new skills. It's a great way to gain hands-on experience for people wanting to work in the arts sector.

If you are interested in joining our team, download an application form and return it to the Gallery. You can download our application form here.

Please note that volunteers at Surface Gallery should be 18 or over.
