Provan Hall Community Management Trust is looking for volunteers to support our exhibitions programme at Provan Hall, a late medieval building that has recently undergone a £2m restoration.

The aim is to have a new exhibition every 3 months. Support from exhibition volunteers could involve preparing interpretation panels, images, setting up and taking down exhibitions. Exhibitions will be open to the public and aim to engage the public with the history of Provan Hall and the wider area. The Trust aims to support volunteers to gain new skills, knowledge, experience, and meet new people. The role is flexible. The Trust provide training, a script, and cover reasonable volunteer travel expenses.

The role can include one or more of the following, and you can decide your responsibilities in discussion with the Volunteer Coordinator:

• Researching exhibition topics and/or drawing on existing research

• Preparing short, written interpretation for heritage panels in simple, accessible, family friendly language

• Identifying images (ideally high resolution and not under copyright) for exhibitions

• Taking photographs for exhibitions

• Helping set up / take down exhibitions

No qualifications or previous experience is required. Valuable qualities for the role include an interest in local history, the ability to write in accessible language (training will be given), to meet deadlines, work with others, and communication skills.

Why should you apply?

To learn, meet new people, build skills, experience and confidence, and increased wellbeing through community connection.
