Membership Number: AJC238 / Registered Charity Number: 021

Art in the Frame Foundation, a Jersey registered not-for-profit charity, was founded 20 years ago by two art teachers. From the very start, Art in the Frame Foundation had two main objectives:

1) To help and support up-and-coming artists and craftworkers exhibit their work in Jersey and the UK by furthering opportunities for them.

2) To enhance the learning of the art and craft experience by bringing exciting and innovative artists and craftworkers to the island’s schools, from primary school to A Level, as well as to the island’s public and those with learning disabilities and to give talks and run workshops.

A major dream and a third objective, which very happily was realised 15 years ago, was to find a hub in which to carry out our objectives above. With the help of a Tourism Development Fund Grant, The Harbour Gallery at St Aubin, Jersey was born. Now it is a case of fundraising to help pay towards the commercial rents etc whilst still keeping our activities as accessible as possible to students in schools and of all ages and supporting up and coming artists/craftworkers.

Volunteer Role

Volunteers sit for 3 hours at the desk at The Harbour Gallery in St Aubin 10.00am – 1.00pm or 1.00pm – 4.00pm with the last 1 1/2 hours done by the manager/s or an artist or volunteer. Volunteers get free coffee or tea on each session, Christmas presents and a party. We also need help with exhibitions at The Harbour Gallery (in very friendly surroundings), some secretarial work and helping to find sponsorship and fundraise. Volunteers also help with the transportation of visiting artists and craft workers.

Volunteer Commitment

From as little as 2-3 hours, to as many hours as you can give us, to help with manning the desk 7 days a week, to coincide with exhibitions, artist talks and workshops.
