Volunteers wanted for our summer exhibition!

‘Biological Hermeneutics’ July 29 – August 26 2017

Chethams’s Library is looking for volunteers to help invigilate our summer art exhibition.

‘Biological Hermeneutics’, by transdisciplinary artist Sarah Craske, is based on a 300-year-old copy of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, discovering and making visible the microbial life that has silently accrued through the centuries upon its pages.

The exhibition will take place partly in our beautiful Victorian Waterhouse Building (not normally open to the public), and partly inside the beautiful seventeenth-century library. We are looking to recruit volunteers to help invigilate the exhibition from Monday-Saturday, between 9.30 and 4.30 for the duration of the show. Various shifts are available and travel expenses will be paid.

Applicants MUST have previous experience of working or volunteering for an arts or heritage organisation, and should be able to engage confidently with our visitors about contemporary art. We will need you to be able to commit to at least two mornings/afternoons. For more information or to apply, please contact Sue McLoughlin, Heritage Manager at Chetham’s Library admin@chethams.org.uk
