Placements

Everyone that attends ArtWorks gets the opportunity 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 environment whilst playing an active role in their community.

Man sat in a tailor with wheelbarrow and gardening equipment

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!

Four people holding certificates

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.

Volunteering at The Retired Greyhound Trust girl with a greyhound dog

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.

 

Volunteering at Sheffield Doc/Fest

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!

gardening, clearning branches

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.
