European Year of Volunteering 2011

Arts & Business is an official partner for the European Year of Volunteering and as such is leading on the arts and culture theme in England.

A&B aim to recruit a new generation of people willing to give their time to the arts, adding value by leveraging its business network, offering volunteers who can advise and help on topics from marketing to business planning, from digital to accountancy.

A&B has created interactive forms on its website where arts organisations can register their volunteering opportunities and volunteers can search for placements.

During the coming six months, A&B will be:

• running a series of volunteering matching events in major cities across the country where you can meet and network with volunteers
• running a targeted campaign to increase interest in volunteering generally in the arts and culture
• celebrating and thanking volunteers in the arts for their contributions at a number of high impact networking events
• keeping you up to date with networking and matching events through their website

The matchmaking events are:
