Support a well established Arts Centre in a friendly Irish town. A full immersion experience with homestay and a unique way to discover Ireland!

Ireland is a wonderful country; it is safe, friendly, English speaking, rich in heritage, history and culture. From vibrant, exciting cities to spectacular countryside – it’s a magical place to visit. It’s also a wonderful place to stay and immerse yourself doing meaningful volunteer work.

The Arts Centre is located in the friendly town of Clonmel and welcomes international and local volunteers to support its work. This Arts Centre presents a range of visual arts exhibitions in its gallery space. It also organises creative workshops and classes for children, young people and adults to engage with high standard arts programmes. The Arts Centre is also involved in the organisation of specific events such as concerts, poetry readings and dance. The project is run by professional staff members who are supported by interns and volunteers and welcomes volunteers all year round.

Volunteer work

Volunteers can get involved in a wide variety of activities. At the beginning of the programme, volunteers are presented with the different possible tasks and they discuss with their project mentor in which areas they will be involved.

Volunteers generally help with the organisation and facilitations of arts workshops. They are also expected to support the work of the Arts Centre in other areas such as event promotion, marketing and general administration. The Arts Centre is also working in partnership with several other local projects in the arts sector and volunteers may have the opportunity to get involved with them for example by supporting the organisation of a concert or a festival.

There will be 1 or 2 international volunteers at the same time at the project. The project is also welcoming local interns and volunteers. There might be other international volunteers in other projects in Clonmel with who they can link and meet during their free time.

Example of tasks:

  • Assisting in workshop facilitation
  • Providing administrative support
  • Helping organising arts events within the centre and outside the centre with partner organisations
  • Supporting marketing and promotion campaigns
  • Supporting social media activities

Who are we looking for?

Volunteers with a diversity of profiles are welcome; they do not necessarily need to have an artistic background. For example, volunteers with a background in marketing or social media are in need at the project.
