“Giving back through volunteering is a rewarding experience both for the person who volunteers and the organisation who hosts the. It is an amazing way of gaining experience with a view to future employment or sharing talents or expertise that might benefit the organisation. I highly recommend volunteering – I believe it was the thing that set me apart from other candidates when I applied for my first position in arts management and I genuinely believe it was the stepping stone to my career which is immensely rewarding. Do it!”
Emma Drury, Director of Seacourt

Ebony our intern
Ebony is an art student who is taking a year out from her studies at University of Ulster. She wanted to gain some professional experience and take some time to reflect about the kind of career she wants to forge. She approached us to request a placement and we were delighted to take her on to help with social media, our website, to undertake some training in workshop support, teaching and facilitation.
