Call for Volunteers

Gallery and Events Volunteer

Background to Hertford Arts Hub

Let us Leap was a community-based festival in June to introduce Hertford to the concept of Hertford Arts Hub. The festival tested whether there was an appetite for a new contemporary gallery and an education community space. The exhibition of the painter, poet and musician, Alan Davie (1920-2014) was a crucial part of this and was expected to last until 14th July. However due to popular demand and interest the Hertford Old Brewery will continue to exhibit a small number of his dynamic works until further notice. He was celebrated as the first British artist of the twentieth century to develop an expressive form of abstraction and for over 50 years worked from his home and studio in nearby Rush Green. His work was also shown three years ago at Hertford Theatre gallery.

We now want to

  • Curate a programme of artistic events to include creatives and organisations that will take inspiration from Davie.
  • Recruit volunteers who are interested in culture, Hertford’s history and want to be instrumental in delivering this project for the benefit of the town.
