Gallery Assistant at Lighthouse

Lighthouse is a Brighton-based arts charity specialising in connecting new developments in art, technology, science and society.

We provide an accessible programme of training, talks, exhibitions, commissions and education initiatives.

The work that we do is funded by a blend of public, private and commercial income.

For over 30 years, our programme has revealed new ways of presenting artists and the creative industries, how artistic work and practice can cross boundaries and disciplines, and be used as a way of enhancing digital technology and its place within society.

What does the opportunity involve doing?

We are looking for volunteer Gallery Assistants to invigilate The Informals II an immersive exhibition presented by Lighthouse as part of Brighton Festival, May 2020. The Informals II ( is an improvised documentary experience, the work combines an exhibition and performance by artists Polina Medvedeva and Andreas Kühne, in collaboration with talent from Brighton’s emerging music subcultures.

Inspired by the artists’ interest in improvisation, non-conformity and ways of living in the digital age, The Informals II explores the lives and stories of Brighton’s youth subcultures. The Gallery Assistants will help us manage our exhibition space from 1-24 May 2020. If you have an interest in immersive audio visual work, sound and live performance or would just like to get involved and gain experience of working in a gallery space, we’d love to hear from you.

We are also looking for volunteers to assist with the installation and setup of the exhibition as well as support for a performance event on the 6th May. This will be a great chance to see behind the scenes and learn what it takes to exhibit an interactive installation work and live event. No experience necessary, full training will be given.
