Carousel Puts Out A Call for Volunteers To Attend Free Training Course

Are you passionate about inspiring the artistic ambitions of learning disabled film makers, performers and musicians? Carousel is – and you could help support our artists while developing your practical and creative skills.

Running weekly from 7th June – 12th July, Carousel offers a structured course with hands-on practical work across our art form areas.

Working alongside our artists in film and media, you could contribute to the Oska Bright Boo Volunteering at Blue Camel Club - Photo by Paul Mansfield (002)Film Festival, or support workshops in schools. If you have musical expertise, we’d train you to support our rock and pop bands, or help to run our popular club night, Blue Camel Club.

Volunteering with Carousel has been an eye-opener. A massively rewarding experience which has given me a different perspective on the world. The artists are so full of talent and a joy to work with.” Boo, Volunteer, 2016
