Volunteer at Rosetta Art Centre!


Natalie talks about her experiences and what she learnt volunteering at Rosetta.

“I started volunteering at Rosetta Art Centre in mid July of this year. As a slightly apprehensive student volunteer I was expecting to be given jobs such as sorting through mailing lists and clearing databases. Nothing could have prepared me for the vast variety of work Rosetta are involved with nor the level of responsibility I would be given. During my time here I have been working closely with the preparations underway for the new Humble Gallery, which is to be opened soon. This has included learning skills such as writing press releases and conducting market research, which I was lucky enough to be able to discuss with advisors from HSBC at their Marketing Strategy day here in August. On the other end of the spectrum, Rosetta Art Centre is all about arts education. I got to experience this first hand working as a teaching assistant for two weeks at the Centre’s summer school for young Newham residents aged 8-18. Although this mostly involved pretending that I knew how to adjust the ISO setting on a DSLR Camera, I also learned a lot about photography, editing, mosaic, ceramics and working with children, assisting with the summer school students was definitely a highlight of my time here. I have also been immersed in the administration and exhibition side of the art centre, handled some art, polished some cabinets and even had the privilege of a pottery class with Frank. All in all this has been an invaluable experience with a fantastic team of people who have made me feel very welcome and appreciated. I would recommend volunteering at RAC and in something that there is creative passion about to anyone! Thanks Trisha, Sanaz, David and Hassan for being so great to work with”.
