Unpaid opportunity to work on a unique contemporary art exhibition in the Grade II Listed Municipal Bank building on Broad Street, Birmingham, UK.

Thrift Radiates Happiness is the first art exhibition to ever be held at this heritage site.  We are looking for gallery assistants to invigilate the building during the launch and the 3 days it will be open to the public.

We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people to join our team.  We would need you to be available between Thursday 14th and Sunday 17th March 2013, all day.  Responsibilities will include:
  • ·      Talking to the public about the show.
  • ·      Looking after the artwork.
  • ·      Making sure the building is well cared for.

An interest in the arts would be a benefit but we are happy to open this opportunity up to anyone who would like to be involved.

Partners on this project include: Aedas Architects, RIBA, Birmingham Architects Association, TROVE, Birmingham City Council, Birmingham Central Library Archives.

If you are interested please send us your CV and a sentence or two why you would like to be on the Thrift Radiates Happiness team.

This would be an incredible opportunity to work with a site rarely open to the public and within new art and architecture partnerships.  It would be a valuable experience if you are an art/architecture student, have an interest in local history or want to get into the creative industries.

Deadline: Sunday 3rd February 2013 5pm

Email Project Assistant Amy for more details and/or to submit your application.
