Would you like to volunteer at community art events but not sure what it might entail? If so, we’d like to invite you to a free volunteer training opportunity to help you help us find out more about the people coming along to our arts events.
It will take place at Swale CVS in Central Avenue, Sittingbourne on Monday, July 14th from 5.30pm – 7.30pm. Ages from 14 upwards are welcome and expenses will be covered.
For all activities, particularly publicly funded art ones, knowing who comes to our events and takes part in our activities is crucial to making sure we involve the whole community, and important for feeding back to our funders and sponsors.
The session will be run by The Audience Agency, specialists in training fieldworkers – especially volunteers attached to projects – to get the most useful feedback from audiences and participants. This session will look at asking people the right questions, in a variety of ways, from surveys to vox pops. We hope this will provide an opportunity for people in the local community to volunteer and to learn useful new skills.
