Volunteering

Are you passionate about digital art and technology? Join our team of volunteers!

People coming to discover SHIFT activities are from across Cheshire, the North region and beyond. They include families, artists and digital professionals, and they are of all ages and backgrounds.
We’re looking for a range of people to welcome everyone, so if you like people, art, and digital technology, this role is the volunteer role you’re looking for.
You’ll meet new people; learn about art and digital technologies, and gain skills and experience, so get in touch if you’d like to join our team.

We’d love to hear from people of all ages and experience levels to volunteer in support of the programme, from sharing skills and knowledge, supporting people to learn, and hands on logistics. This could be to:

  • Deliver or host workshops and coder dojo type events.
  • Support with event management – setting up spaces, chatting to attendees.
  • Undertake exhibition set up and installation – learning about art works.
  • Supervise the gallery / public spaces used for exhibitions, talking to the public about the art, and making sure everyone gets as much from the exciting work as possible.
  • Support social media, press and marketing.

To join the SHIFT team, please contact us and tell us about yourself, your interests, and what you’d like offer to support SHIFT – include a CV if you like.

Sponsorship

A range of sponsorship opportunities are available to support and embed the SHIFT programme. From offering space for activity to being a headline sponsor of events, bespoke packages can be created to suit your needs.

  • Cement Cheshire East’s reputation for digital/creative industries and high quality arts.
  • Build capacity and skills.
  • Offer wide public engagement.
