Every volunteer will become part of the YSI team and play a key role in supporting our public programme throughout the festival. You would be based across our partner galleries: Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and outside in the public realm. Roles are being offered on a flexible basis with reimbursement of travel expenses to and from the venues across Leeds and Wakefield.

  • Monitoring and evaluation
  • Gallery assistance
