Office Volunteers – If you are looking for some arts admin work experience and have the right skill set to get involved then please do. We often need help with specific projects like as putting on exhibitions and events (such as Glastonbury, Pride etc) as well as help with our social media, web updates etc.
Mechanics/engineers – We have a number of ongoing Brighton Body Casting branded vehicle projects going on. They are all pretty quirky and they all need varying degree of TLC, There’s our Piaggio Ape pick up truck that needs some love, a pedal-powered Trabant that really needs to be uprated to run better, a 1980s Velosolex moped and a 1953 Mercier moped both of which are currently non runners. Any enthusiast who might want to get involved on a skills swap basis do say hi.
Contact Us – If you are looking for freelance work or some work experience in a professional artist’s studio just email us including some information about you and ideally a CV and images of any relevant work.
Like any artist’s studio there are super busy times when we need extra hands. We also revel in our role of mentoring and nurturing young talent. Volunteers and freelancers have often ended up on our permanent staff. Many have then gone on to great careers in film, theatre, education and the fine arts. Jamie also pursues his fine art practice in the studio and is often working on massive, long outcome projects. Many hands make light work…
The Great Wall of Vagina for instance only exists because a small army of volunteers came and helped out, over the course of five years, to make it happen. Without our studio manager and assistants to take care of all the many things that a business like this needs we’d be hard pressed to make any art! This business is a kaleidoscope of moving parts, which on our own we would be frequently overwhelmed by. It is only with the help of others, both paid and voluntary, that the magic happens.
