The volunteers will be put into small groups who will be responsible for specific sections of the exhibition, working alongside the curator to select the materials and art pieces which will contribute to the exhibition’s overall story.
They will then pitch their idea to staff from Sampad and Birmingham Museums who will provide professional feedback on their proposals.
The selected volunteers will attend a series of workshops over the summer holidays to help form the exhibition’s ideas, messages and design. We are keen to hear from anyone over the age of 18 who is interested in being involved.
By volunteering in this role participants will receive the following benefits;
New knowledge about a significant historical event
Free professional training in research

Opportunity to meet new people and make new friends
Opportunity to learn something new about the area you live in
All reasonable expenses reimbursed
