Everyone that attends ArtWorks gets the oppertunity to take part in some fantastic volunteer placements. These placements are fully supported by the ArtWorks team and help our artists to build workplace skills, in a safe and supportive enviroment whilst playing an active role in their community.
From May 2019 we will be working with The Local Theatre to provide work placements within their new cafe. All the users that participate in the work placement will be supported to undergo their Level 1 in Food Hygiene. If you know anyone that would be interested in our placement please get in touch.
We run weekly volunteer placements with Wentworth Woodhouse. This placement includes redeveloping a walled garden and helping maintain the gardens and grounds. We've also been helping with preparations for the Tour De Yorkshire. If you like the outdoors and gardening this might be for you!
We love volunteering at The Retired Greyhound Trust in Wortley. We get to walk these beautiful dogs in a safe calm environment up on the private estate. It's a great way to get some exercise in too! If you like animals as much as we do you'll love this opportunity to spend time with some lovable greyhounds.
Sheffield Documentary Film Festival is world leading and the UK’s premier documentary festival. Each year the ArtWorks Collective help with all aspects of the festival from Virtual Reality Technician to Cinema Steward. We also get to experience the festival first hand. You might even spot a celebrity or two!
In the beautiful setting of Storrs Wood, we get to spend time helping maintain and improve the woodland and creative habitats for the local wildlife. If you like nature and learning about wildlife then this is the perfect place to come. We even get the time out to light up the fire pit for toasted marshmallows.
Theatre Deli is an arts charity that changes the way people think about their creative potential. They unlock unusual spaces where artists, audiences and communities can come together to make transformational moments. We love getting stuck in helping them to transform disused spaces into performance areas.
Volunteering with the Wildlife Trust is a great way to enjoy the local woods. Working alongside others you'll get to help maintain the woodland whilst learning about the wildlife that habitat in the area. It's a great opportunity to meet new people and groups. This volunteer placement runs at Grenoside woods.
