Volunteer Opportunities

Ambassadors - Ambassadors are spokespeople for Outside In who represent the organisation at public events.

Artist Advisory Group - Our new committee of artists meet quarterly to discuss Outside In's developments. The group members represent the wider Outside In community. Their voice informs and directs the work of Outside In.

Blog writers - Anyone can contribute to our blog with stories, articles, reviews and much more. Ideal for volunteers who would prefer to work remotely or from home.

Office or event support - Help the team with administrative tasks in the Outside In office or lend a hand at Outside In events.
