Volunteering position
Portals to the World and other Volunteer Opportunities



Portals to the World, The Fitzwilliam Museum

The Fitzwilliam Museum Learning team is delighted to be running another Portals to the World course this autumn followed by a year-long monthly alumni programme. This is a museum engagement programme designed specifically for people with dementia, who are still living at home, and their care partners (spouses, family or friends). The aim of the course is to improve museum inclusion by engaging with the known value of the art aesthetic and social engagement in order to provide an enjoyable cultural experience for people with dementia and their carers.

We are looking for a team of Volunteers to help support this worthwhile programme. For more information and to fill out an expression of interest form, please visit the Get Involved website.

Anthropology Collections Volunteer, The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

Within the next five years the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology (MAA) will be undertaking a large-scale movement of our on-site stores. To improve our documentation ahead of this move, we are recruiting a team of volunteers for the month of August 2017 to barcode all boxes and update storage locations using our collections management system. This role will be required in the Asian anthropology and Musical Instrument store and will provide an opportunity to view a variety of objects.
