Whitworth Weekending Volunteer Opportunity 

On 1st September 2013, Whitworth Art Gallery will be closing its doors fully, for the first time in its 120-year history. The gallery will be shut until next summer to complete the final stages of a historic re-development.

To celebrate this, from Friday 30 August – Sunday 1 September we’re holding Whitworth Weekending: a weekend of celebratory events, music, food and art to make the gallery and park teem with life. We want Whitworth Park to feel like a festival for everyone, so we can say thank you to all who make the Whitworth what it is, as this chapter in its long history comes to an end.

We are looking for a number of committed and enthusiastic volunteers to join our team in various roles, so we can make the weekend as warm and welcoming as possible.

These include:

– stewards and hosts

– artist liaison assistants

– production assistants

– runners

For further information and to register your interest please contact Kate Glynn at Kate.Glynn@manchester.ac.uk or call 0161 306 1773. The closing date for applications is 31.7.13.
