Volunteer Roles

At the Barn we depend on our team of volunteers. They help us with everything from our Wild Gardens to our Operations!  We are looking for some more assistance in the following areas:

Operations: Caretaker

We are looking for assistance for our caretaker to help with the operational aspect of the Barn. We would be looking for help a morning or two per week to help set up for events and general upkeep of the Barn.

If this interests you please contact mail@woodendbarn.co.uk

Wild Garden: Gardeners

We have a thriving Wild Garden behind the Barn that requires lots of up keep and maintenance. If you have green fingers, or would like to explore the great outdoors, and are keen to get involved with a friendly group of gardeners, this would be a huge help to the Barn in ensuring the garden always looks its best. Anytime that you can spare through the week would be much appreciated.

If you’d like to help with the garden please contact mail@woodendbarn.co.uk

Woodend Arts seeking new Board Members

Woodend Arts Limited (WAL) is seeking Directors to join its voluntary Board. WAL operates the Woodend Barn, Aberdeenshire’s largest multi-arts centre, with a small staff team and around 50 volunteers. WAL’s mission is to work collaboratively through the arts, connecting our communities through creativity and friendship.

We are a not-for-profit company and registered Scottish charity and we are seeking people with a variety of skills/experience and a passion for creativity and community engagement to help steer our future.

WAL annually hosts some 150 professional performances (comedy, dance, film, music, opera, live streaming, theatre), 10 exhibitions and over 120 arts workshops and the Barn is considered to have a combination of factors that make it unique as an arts centre in Scotland, perhaps event the UK and beyond. These factors include

voluntary engagement of the community in all facets of the Barn’s activities,
volunteers and paid staff equally valued as members of the Barn Team,
width, depth and quality if its arts activities, including its outreach work along the Dee valley,
a broad interpretation of the arts to include cooking, gardening and conversation,
awareness of the environment and our relationship to the area’s ecology,
Barn’s rural character and welcoming ambience

The Barn is a place for sustaining creativity and it survives because of the value the community places on it.

Please contact Anne Douglas (01224 869890), or Mark Hope (pmarkhope@gmail.com) if you are interested.
