Can you help display / distribute KA publicity materials, please?

Dear Neighbours

At last week's Publicity Team meeting,
it was
agreed that we prepare a specific list of tasks,
for which folk might easily volunteer
without having to commit to too much effort.

If you could kindly, please, respond to this VERY short questionnaire,
we can then begin distributing publicity materials around the neighbourhood!

Very many thanks
Best wishes

Volunteer Invigilators Needed: Beaconsfield, London

Volunteer Invigilators Needed: Beaconsfield, London

This is a great opportunity to become part of a small friendly team and to gain experience in the running of a contemporary art space.

We are looking for volunteers to help invigilate Beaconsfield’s programme of exhibitions, including our current exhibition, Fraternise – the Salon (April-May 2011). Our full future programme of exhibitions can be found on our website:

A friendly and communicative manner is important as you will be the first point of contact for the public. Volunteer invigilators play a vital role in providing a warm welcome and introducing visitors to artworks. Duties include assisting with the smooth running of the galleries, switching on artworks and helping with set up at the beginning of the day, carrying out audience monitoring tasks and assisting with serving in the small café during busy periods.
A full introduction to tasks will be given and volunteers always work alongside other members of staff. It is essential to come with an interest in contemporary art and the willingness to engage with Beaconsfield’s programme. Volunteers are given an introduction to each project by participating curators or artists and we can also offer Monmouth coffee-making training.

The galleries are open Tuesday – Sunday, 11am – 5pm. Weekend and weekday volunteering shifts are available.
We ask you to sign up to regular shifts several weeks in advance but volunteering can be flexible to fit around other responsibilities. Volunteers work on average 2-6 shifts a month.  Although this position is unpaid, travel expenses within London (up to zone 6) can be covered for days worked.

If you are interested to join our friendly team, or would like more information, please email Lily Davies:

Beaconsfield is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applicants from all sections of the community. We regret that at present not all parts of the venue are accessible to wheelchair users.

Beaconsfield is an independent commissioning organisation based in Vauxhall. Set up by artists in 1994 we provide an important resource for the development and presentation of international contemporary art.

Fraternise – the Salon gathers a cohort of artists in a curated, fundraising exhibition, to support the future existence of Beaconsfield – the pioneering, non-profit organisation that has provided a laboratory and presentation space for artists since 1995.

Beaconsfield is an artist-led entity that specialises in encouraging artists to pursue projects of ambition and to experiment without commercial pressure. The Salon brings together collaborators, patrons and protégés who have worked with Beaconsfield or who support its role in the artists’ community.

The Salon offers a rare opportunity to view a diverse range of contemporary works (many artists exhibiting together for the first time) and to start or expand a collection. Sales will benefit both participating artists and Beaconsfield.

Fraternise – the Salon is co-curated by the charity’s artist-trustees, Rachel Howard, Judith Dean and artist-directors A. David Crawforth and Naomi Siderfin.
