If you are interested in contemporary art and would like to volunteer some time to help us deliver our programme of exhibitions, events and offsite projects please get in touch. Volunteering at the gallery is a great way to see behind the scenes, gain an understanding of how we work and meet other people who are interested in contemporary art. We work with you to make sure the time you spend with us is as useful for you as possible – you can get involved in a whole range of things from audience development, exhibition installation and events management to invigilation, research and archiving.

Sorry, but you can only volunteer with Eastside Projects if you are aged 18 or over.

To join our community of volunteers please click on the big orange buttons below and complete the online questionnaires. Then we’ll get back in touch to arrange for you to have an induction and meet the team.


We regularly develop Volunteer led projects like ‘Black Box’, which see people work together to devise alternative ways to interpret and think about interpretation our exhibitions. they are available in the gallery for audiences to explore.
