Volunteering themed exhibition

As part of this year’s Volunteers’ Week (1 to 7 June) and the Reading Volunteer Awards 2019, Reading Voluntary Action will be working with partners to curate an exhibition on the theme of volunteering.

We are seeking creative representations of what volunteering means to those involved in or benefiting from voluntary work. We are looking for newly created or pre-existing works that might include:

  • Photography
  • Video
  • Painting
  • Illustration
  • Graphic Design
  • Sculpture
  • Writing
  • Performance art

By bringing together these pieces of art and their accompanying stories, we hope to create a physical and virtual exhibition showcasing the extraordinary contribution volunteers and volunteering make to life in our town.

The physical exhibition will take place in the Holybrook Gallery, while the virtual exhibition will be hosted on our website and form part of the celebration event marking the Reading Volunteer Awards 2019.
