Front of house stewarding for exhibitions, putting together and editing The Response magazine, and helping out on evening events such as panel discussions.

What do you hope to get out of it?
Learning something that was different to university.

What is your most memorable experience while volunteering with Fabrica?
Sitting around drinking tea and sewing together hundreds of pieces of sheet music for the Resonance exhibition, so therapeutic!

Egon Schiele

Favourite Exhibition? (at Fabrica or personal?)
James Turrell at the Gagosian, it felt like walking into nothingness.

James Turrell! Especially with Fabrica’s amazing architecture!

Why should anyone thinking of volunteering with Fabrica get involved?
There’s so much to be gained and it’s a great place to be part of.

What do you do when your not volunteering with us?
I’m a student at the University of Brighton studying History of Design Culture & Society. Here’s a link to the blog for our course where I talk about volunteering at Fabrica: https://studentfolio.brighton.ac.uk/hoad/
