We The People Are The Work is a major visual arts project in Plymouth that will explore ideas of power, protest and the public. The project will see five internationally acclaimed artists from the UK, Canada, France and Mexico journey to Plymouth to create new artworks, give talks and lead workshops, inspired by the city’s rich heritage, its people, and their aspirations for the future.
The exhibition for We The People Are The Work will take place from Friday 22 September - Saturday 18 November 2017 at five venues around the city: The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art, The Council House at Plymouth City Council, KARST, Peninsula Arts at the University of Plymouth and Plymouth Arts Centre.
We are looking for a team of volunteer Gallery Explainers for the five exhibiting venues, all of whom will be fully trained to enhance the visitor experience, provide insight and facilitate conversations.
Anyone interested in applying is asked to submit a short video and registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 29 August and be able to attend all of the training dates. Interviews will take place on 6 September and shifts will run on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 27 September to 18 November. Full details and application form can be found at wethepeoplearethe.work/news.
Training will include a comprehensive look at contemporary art, techniques for engaging audiences and an introduction to the exhibition and its artists, delivered by Plymouth-based artist and trainer Rachel Dobbs. Alongside the art-focussed training, volunteers can expect to complete an accredited certificate in Customer Service by WorldHost, delivered through City College Plymouth.
