Current Opportunities

We’re looking for volunteers! Fill out the form below if any of the following roles appeal to you.

Cultural Volunteer

As a hands-on cultural volunteer, you will be available to donate a few hours a month to the Heroines Quarter, located in the heart of Gloucester. Here you’ll be a representative and advocate for the work we do and the work of the  Heroines. This is a unique opportunity to be immersed in art while championing women photographers. It would also be preferable to have a knack for social media as we would love to cover live events held in our space and for you to get involved with local projects such as Glostorama! This role is perfect for a passionate person who is excited about bringing culture and photography to the forefront in Gloucester. The Heroines Quarter is fully accessible. We ask for a minimum of one shift per month, and this can be a regular shift at a fixed time or flexible each month to suit your diary.  And, of course, you’re welcome to sign up for more than one!

Responsibilities include:

  • Meet & Greet visitors
  • Helping with daily set-up of the Creative Canvas
  • Assisting with preparation of materials
  • Serving in the (small) shop

We operate 2 shifts – 10:00 to 13:30 and 13:30 to 16:30 – Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays

Micro Volunteers

As a micro-volunteer, you have the flexibility to donate as little or as much of your time as you want and whenever you want. You can either volunteer remotely or from the Heroines Quarter.  The actual tasks depend what we need on the day and these are listed on the Volunteer Portal, which all volunteers can access.  It can be something as simple as distributing leaflets to sharing a blog post on social media.  There’s no ongoing commitment, you simply dip in and out whenever you like and it really helps expand our reach and increase our audience, allowing us to gain more momentum through you

Press & Media

Content Creator

A content creator is someone who loves research, has a keen eye for grammar and is looking to get their written work published. It helps if you’re familiar with our Heroines or if you love trips to your local gallery. Jobs often include writing photographer profiles, exhibition reviews and creative writing. This volunteer role can be remote-based and suits those who are keen writers or those who want to dabble in a creative outlet. In exchange for your time; you will have work published and promoted on our site and social platforms, have writing resources available to you and have an editor to go through your work to help you create the perfect piece.

BSL Interpreter

The BSL interpreter volunteer will play a pivotal role in making our exhibitions and events more widely accessible.  Main responsibility will be to turning exhibition audio guides into BSL interpretations for video. This can be done in situ or via Zoom.
