We are seeking to recruit a team of student volunteers to support the opening weekend of music events, previews, talks and art activities in some of the city’s best known galleries (Friday 1-Monday 4 June 2012). We are especially keen to recruit French speakers or people with a connection to West Africa who might be able to act as interpreters for the artists who will be here – but everyone with an interest would be welcome.The first 10 students to express an interest will receive exclusive tickets for one of the most prestigious events- the after-show Afrobeats opening night party.

We Face Forward is a season of contemporary art and music from West Africa, celebrated across Manchester’s galleries, museums, music venues and public spaces from 2 June to 16 September as part of London 2012 Festival.


To express an interest, please send an email titled WFF student volunteers to Naomi.Kashiwagi@manchester.ac.uk, confirming that you can attend the briefing session at Whitworth Art Gallery on Friday 1 June (am), your availability on the Fri, Sat, Sun & Mon and if you speak French. Deadline: Wednesday 23 May.
