Become a bank (ad hoc) volunteer


If you'd like to volunteer for Borderline Arts, but can't commit to regular time slots, we have a Bank of Volunteers who we contact when we run events, workshops, activities etc to ask if they are able to help. We ask that you commit to help at at least one event per year if you sign up - there is no pressure to do any more than that, but you are of course welcome to help at as many as you like!
