At Belfast Exposed we have a dedicated team of volunteers who assist staff in the day-to-day running of the gallery. While invigilating in our gallery is a primary element of the role, our volunteers can also get involved with installing exhibitions, and assisting at events such as openings, talks and workshops.
Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds, with many having established or are currently developing their own photographic practice. In the past we have developed a series of volunteer led projects, including critiques, workshops and exhibitions.
Though we are unable to pay volunteers we can contribute to travel expenses. We also offer free access to the darkroom and computer room.
Previous Volunteer Led Projects
Thirteen photographers, who volunteer at Belfast Exposed, came together to create a group exhibition 'Imprint', curated by Sam Robb, to impress their views in relation to the world around them. The diversity of the work was balanced by real-life environment and experience. Many of the works dealt with post-troubles considerations but also dealt with social justice issues such as transgender, racism and urban vs rural.
Working alongside Belfast Exposed Gallery Manager Hannah Watson & Artist and Facilitator Frederic Huska, a team of our volunteers produced new work for an exhibition as part of the Young at Art Office of Important Art programme.
A group exhibition featuring work by Belfast Exposed Volunteers entitled, Reconstructions: A Response. This exhibition involved the group producing new work using our exhibition Reconstructions (featuring work by Espen Dietrichson, Nina Fischer & Maroan el Sani, Onorato & Krebs and Jan McCullough) as a starting point.
In 2013 our volunteers had the opportunity to curate an exhibition entitled Resolutions.
