Fabrica is a visual arts organisation based in a former Regency church in the heart of Brighton, which commissions contemporary visual art installations specific to the building. Fabrica encourages an open dialogue between artists and visitors within the gallery space and produces an integrated programme of education and audience development activity that strives to remove barriers to access, engagement and understanding.
What does the opportunity involve doing?
The main focus of the Front of House Volunteer role at Fabrica is invigilating exhibitions when we are open to the public. The volunteers work with the Volunteer Coordinators and fellow volunteers to greet visitors into the gallery, maintain the Front of House tasks and communicate the ideas of the artwork to the public.
There are also further opportunities relating to each exhibition:
- Installing and de-rigging exhibitions
- producing the Research and Interpretation folders
- producing the volunteer Response Magazine
- Volunteer-led workshops in the gallery
