Volunteering with The Cultural Spring

To help deliver our diverse range of events and community arts workshops The Cultural Spring has a volunteer programme.

We’ll always aim to make the volunteering experience mutually beneficial. By volunteering, you are also helping yourself develop a wide range of skills that will assist you in your future career. You could learn new skills or develop ones you already have. Volunteering also helps build confidence and communication skills and could provide employment opportunities by meeting people in the industries in which you’d like to work. By volunteering, you’re also showing future employers that you are committed and open to new and varied challenges.

We have had many volunteering opportunities over the last few years such as at Great North Passion, RUSH, Summer Streets, WordPlay, the Cultural Spring Creative Space and more. These projects saw volunteers work with musicians, professional dancers, performers, the public and artists and more.

Below is what some of our volunteers have to say about their experience:

Masumah: Sunderland College Student

The experienced I gained and enjoyed most was interacting with people. Encouraging children and parents/ guidance participate in activities and being involved with Cultural Spring.  I would like to be involved in the future.

Beth: Sunderland College Student

It was extremely fun to meet new business and find out more about what Sunderland have to offer for all different ages. It was a different learning experience to see what Sunderland offers and what they have previously done, I wouldn’t have had this experience anywhere else.

Current volunteering opportunities

We’re looking for volunteers to help us for Heart of the House. To make this event special we need volunteers to welcome the public, direct people and traffic and help with general duties over the three nights.

You will be working on the event from 5.30pm – 10pm and a briefing will be given. You can also volunteer for all the nights or any day that best suits you. If you’re interested in getting involved please email georgia.shippen@theculturalspring.org.uk by Tuesday 22nd October.
