Support Us

There are a number of ways you can help us continue our important work to enrich peoples’ lives through the arts.

Work for us

Our strength is our people, joined together by a passion for the arts which can enrich and empower us all. 

Volunteer at our Head Office

The Arts Society is run by a small team of staff and committed volunteers at our offices in the heart of Bloomsbury, in London. If you are looking to donate your time to a leading arts education charity, we would love to hear from you.

Volunteers help us with activities such as organising and helping out at events and in-house training days, recruiting new lecturers, updating our database, and answering ​membership enquiries. 

“It has enabled me to learn even more about the arts and also to keep up to date with technology. When we retire, too many of us shy away from ‘commitment’, but I am able to be flexible with my time, and I enjoy the idea that I am helping such a wonderful organisation which is so dependent on volunteers” - Pat Wood, Volunteer


From time-to-time we offer short internships, paid at the national living wage, to complete specific projects. Recent interns have assisted with the recruitment of new lecturers and with website development.

If you are interested in applying for a internship, or volunteering at our head office, please send your CV to Tim Nicholls at


We aim to increase our impact through more public programming to bring the arts to new audiences. Thanks to our incredible network of Societies we can reach people across the UK and abroad and deliver programmes on their doorstep.

We actively seek support from trusts and foundations to help us deliver our charitable objects. In the past we have received grants for crucial projects and activities; to discuss how you can support our work please contact Florian Schweizer: 


You could help others to reach their potential by leaving a gift to The Arts Society in your will. A bequest towards our work will help bring arts and heritage skills to a new generation.
