Volunteering opportunities with us

Workshop Assistant Volunteers for Musical Project 

Many Minds are looking for enthusiastic and committed people to join our team in our weekly performance-making workshops. Many Minds is a member-led mental health and performance charity that facilitates creative spaces and make performances that put people who identify with experiences of mental ill-health in the driver’s seat, to break down stigma and trigger generosity and equality.  

We are currently working on making a large scale devised musical in collaboration with professional artists from across the city leading towards 2 performances on the main stage of Bristol Old Vic on 3rd September 2022.   

We are looking for people to help support in our workshops. Our volunteers participate in the sessions and support the team by helping with setting up the space, welcoming and supporting members to take part in the session and helping to clear up the space afterwards.  

This opportunity includes a group reflective practice session once a month and check ins with Artistic Director to support the volunteers’ development.  

Commitment required:   

7th June – 12th July: Tuesday evenings (5:15-8:45 pm) and Thursdays afternoons (1:15-5:15pm) – ideally we would like someone who can do both days, but will accept applications for one session per week 

July-September we will have more intensive rehearsals – volunteers’ commitment/availability to support with this phase can be discussed nearer the time. 

Who are we looking for?: 

This opportunity might be for you if: 

  • you have interest/experience in working in theatre or the arts 
  • you have interest/experience in working in mental health  
  • you have/would like to develop skills in supporting people to take part in arts workshops 

Deadline: We are looking for volunteers for our workshops starting in June, so please get in touch ASAP. If you’re not available straight away but are interested in volunteering from late July onwards we’d also love to hear from you! 

If you are interested in the role, please send a couple of sentences about yourself and why you are interested in volunteering with us to olivia@many-minds.org or call 07843 210272
