Windrush Portraits | Rasheed Araeen | Valda Jackson: Join us for Summer Season at RWA Art Gallery 

This summer the RWA Art Gallery is thrilled to announce a triple bill of exhibitions honouring global majority artists, exploring ideas of British identity, belonging and migration.   

From 25 May to 11 August 2024, works by pioneering artist, curator and activist Rasheed Araeen will be situated alongside ten portraits celebrating men and women of the Windrush Generation from the Royal Collection Trust and a new installation of works by writer and artist Valda Jackson MBE RWA.   

We are opening our doors to volunteers who want to be part of sharing these amazing stories with our community. There are opportunities to spend time with the artworks and visitors, lead guided tours based on your own research and passions, and actively engage in making the exhibitions more accessible. 


These are our available roles*: 

Visitor Assistant 
Audio Description Writer 
Exhibition Tour Guide 
Events Assistant 

We know that life can be busy and unpredictable, so volunteering with us is very flexible. You are welcome to volunteer solo or participate as a pair.  

As well as the chance to develop skills and build your network, RWA Volunteers get unlimited free entry into exhibitions plus guests, discounts in the shop, café and Drawing School, access to free training and invitations to social events and workshops. 

You can learn more and sign up by visiting the RWA Volunteer Hub.  


*Please note that inductions for the Summer Season will take place in the first two weeks of June, but anyone is welcome to attend our Exhibition Briefing and Events Assistant Training on 23 May.
