Cockayne 10th Anniversary Young Volunteer Reviewers Scheme

Cockayne 10th Anniversary Young Volunteer Reviewers Scheme

In keeping with the foundation’s commitment to supporting young people in the arts, Cockayne would like to invite young arts enthusiasts, aged 20 - 30, to consider volunteering to assist the foundation in reviewing the arts projects it supports. The role is unpaid but reviewers will be provided with event tickets for themselves and a companion plus reasonable travel expenses. Volunteers must be based in London and prepared to travel to events across the capital mainly in the evening both during the week and at weekends. They should also be open to attending a variety of different art forms/ genres with a diversity of cultural and social perspectives (for the type of projects Cockayne supports see the What We Do section of this website). In return volunteers will be required to submit a brief written review of their experience, of not more than 350 words, within a week of any event they have attended on behalf of the foundation. Cockayne hopes thereby to incorporate the diverse views of a younger generation of arts enthusiasts into its assessment and grant decision processes

This unpaid role will run for 12 months, from mid-September 2023 to mid-September 2024.

All interested applicants should send a letter detailing why they would like to be considered for the scheme plus a copy of their CV and brief reviews of at least 4 arts events they have attended within the last year to Jo Hedley, Executive Director of Cockayne at

The deadline for applications is Noon Friday 28 July 2023.

In person interviews will be held in central London at the beginning of September 2023.
