HERITAGE

VOLUNTEERS

The aim of The Arts Society Heritage Volunteers is to help in the preservation of our national artistic heritage for the benefit of the public. We may be asked to help in the care of a collection or to help make a collection more accessible to others.

Our Heritage Volunteers are non-specialist volunteers who are trained by and work under the guidance of curators and other professionals to help conserve our heritage. We are careful in the work we carry out and are eager to learn, so find our projects stimulating and rewarding.

The Arts Society Cambridge currently has 8 volunteers working at the David Parr House, which involves looking after the collection and researching the history of its garden and the surrounding environs of Gwydir Street and Mill Road.

A new project at Magdalene College to help preserve the collection of books and manuscripts in the Old Library will start later this year.
