Jobs & volunteering
Volunteers are welcome to join us to write personalised feedback for various visual, written and audio entries, including Sculpture, Spoken Word, Painting, Portrait and Craft, which we will send to the entrants to encourage them in their creative journeys. Please let us know which kind of artworks you would be interested in writing about.
Feedback Writing days will take place every Tuesday and Friday in July and August, plus two additional Saturdays on the 10th and 17th August.
If you would like to join us for any dates, please register your interest by sending an email to Phoebe Dunn.
Volunteer Arts Mentors for Ex-Prisoners
We’re looking for artists, creative writers, musicians, and arts industry professionals, to help support our mentoring scheme. We are particularly interested in hearing from applicants based in the North of England and the Midlands.
Through our arts mentoring programme, Koestler Arts identifies and supports prisoners with talent and enthusiasm, helping them to harness their creativity in a way which can make a positive difference to their resettlement.
Mentors work one-to-one with ex-offenders, offering between 7 and 10 mentoring sessions over a 12-month period. We provide full training and support, but the role is largely an autonomous one and we are looking for mentors who can bring their own energy and expertise to the role.
Applications from ex-offenders are positively encouraged.
We accept applications for this role on a rolling basis.
