Get involved! If you are interested in helping out at Babylon ARTS we have regular volunteer opportunities including stewarding at Ely Cinema, Live events, Gallery exhibitions, Project and Festival events as well as helping in the office with tasks such as marketing, fundraising, leaflet distribution and box office. We develop and train our volunteers, offering people the chance to ‘shadow’ more experienced volunteers and volunteers get the chance to see our films and live events free of charge. You will need to complete an application and attend an informal interview before being accepted.

My story: Pamela Johnson, former Trustee
"As a trustee I've had the chance to share the passion of all the team and been able to increase the organisation's resources in fundraised income and staff capacity over the last two years so that the charity can carry on doing what audiences love. This has built a real sense of achievement for Babylon Arts, which has seen a growth in audiences and donated income as a result. While it has been hard work and involved challenge, meeting new people connected with the charity who are passionate to make a difference, has made this even more worthwhile."

See our Jobs page for more information on current opportunities.
