VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO TAKE PART IN EXCITING HERITAGE PROJECT CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF SPARE TYRE – ST40

Spare Tyre has been at the forefront of participatory arts for the last 40 years. This year as we celebrate our anniversary with a major new project called ST40.

We’re looking for volunteers to get involved with two exciting key elements of the project:
• exploring, cataloguing and organising material from the company’s past (documents, photos etc) alongside our dedicated staff, making our history accessible for future generations
• interviewing people who’ve been involved in our 40 year history and recording their stories – including past and current participants, staff, trustees and volunteers – using oral history recording techniques

With support of our Project Manager and Archivist you can take part in some or all of the following activities:
• be trained up in oral history techniques to collect stories
• learn how to handle and catalogue archive material
• visit the V&A Theatre Collection as part of your training (you may also have the opportunity to visit Bristol University Theatre Collection and the collection at Bishopsgate Institute)
• get a full induction to working with Spare Tyre
• get on-going support from the Project Manager
• receive up to £15 against receipts for travel/lunch
