Be part of the team at this independent arts centre helping creativity to flourish

Arts / Entertainment volunteers needed for Rising Sun Arts Centre in RG1

The Rising Sun Arts Centre is a small, independent arts centre, which for 25 years has been staffed and run by volunteers.

The Rising Sun creates a space where creativity flourishes and people come together to make things happen. Our programme includes a varied line up of high quality events and activities, avant garde music from some of the world’s top improvisers, ground breaking, participatory projects and the best band nights in town to name a few, all managed by volunteers without the benefit of core funding or full time staff.

We are seeking to add to our team by recruiting more volunteers to take on the role of House Manager.

  • being an ambassador for the centre

Skills required include:

  • Ability to make decisions and use initiative
