We are developing a new volunteer programme at the gallery – get involved


Volunteers are at the heart of the Whitworth

Our volunteer programme is an essential part of what we do at the Whitworth, with our volunteers getting involved in lots of ways: supporting artists and their work, getting hands-on and creative, helping deliver everything from intimate workshops to large-scale events, art gardening and much more.

Currently recruiting

WYC Student Producer Volunteer

WYC (Whitworth Young Contemporaries) Student Producers imagine and develop creative workshops and events for their peers. Take part in creative workshops; learn about our exhibitions and help shape the Whitworth’s offer for young people.

In 2018 WYC Student Producers will work to create a yearlong programme. Through volunteering you will develop leadership, creative and lateral thinking skills. Learn about event production / management by planning and delivering late night arts events, workshops, talks and tours at the gallery.
