Volunteering

Helping with Events and Exhibitions

The Tetley is looking to recruit a small team of enthusiastic volunteers for a 10-week period from 4th of May to 8th of July, to support the exhibition Material Environments.

Over this period, volunteers will work alongside The Tetley’s Programme Team to support day-to-day running of the gallery in a front of house role. Volunteers will help audience members to engage with the exhibition, encouraging them to explore and interact with the artworks on display; from Serena Korda’s glass harp, to Phoebe Cummings’ immersive environment housing delicate sculptures made from unfired clay. There will also be a chance to support a wide range of events over the exhibition including The Tetley Weekender.

Volunteer Performers for Material Environments

We are looking for a dynamic group of volunteers to be part of a series of performances during the Material Environments ​exhibition at The Tetley 4 May – 8 July 2018. Performers will participate in 2 performance works devised by artist Harold Offeh. For the exhibition, Harold Offeh is proposing the formation of a live archive. The Real Thing: Towards an Authentic Live Archive will use performance, workshops and discussions to propose a model of a living and evolving archive. The concept of a live archive has been a tool for Offeh in his research and has helped to explore the importance of live and direct experiences in the activation of historical material. The Real Thing: Towards an Authentic Live Archive, will be concerned with mapping ideas of reality, realness and authenticity.
