Hello, after seeing the thread about working from home I was wondering if any arty types know of the best places to do volunteer, work experience type work?

Aside from galleries..and other obvious places.

Looking for something interesting...but nothing much happens in North Yorks!!

Schools, theatres??



Theatres I knew of, But I hadn't actually considered schools... would need some sort of 'Can work with kids' thing wouldn't I though (shows my knowledge on protocol :oops:)

any landscape gardening companies around may be good, or see if any art therapists in local trust that may be able to either give you some experience or point you in the right direction. school technicians may be a good option as they have plenty of experience and interesting things to pass on.

You would need the screening for working with children. Can't remember exactly what its called, unfortunately they charge for the this and it can take a couple of months.

Thanks, I may look into a couple of those ideas.. Not thought of the gardening idea, might be interesting.. but as below for the school technician. Probs the same for colleges/uni's... (needing some sort of screening)

yes, I thought I would....hmm, not sure if it is worth it, as in the long run I don't want to work with kiddies. Thanks.

That's true, but I would have trouble getting there atm..thanks for that idea though!

We have quite a few volunteers at our school and all say they enjoy it! (It's a Secondary). You would need an Enhanced CRB check but, at our school anyway, we pay for this to be done for our volunteers.
