Volunteer-Led Construction Project, No Experience Necessary - Newcastle Upon Tyne
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by The Star and Shadow Cinema
A few hours per week
The Star and Shadow Cinema is more than a cinema. It is an alternative social, cultural, arts and community hub run by a collective of volunteers.
It operates a unique system of open programming whereby grass roots community organisations, independent artists and any member of the public can come and promote their own social causes via film, music, discussions and working groups. We provide the space and facilities for this to happen and have done for the last 10 years.
We recently had to move out of our old rented premises in Stepney Bank, Ouseburn to Warwick Street. We are currently closed to the programming of events and community groups and instead our focus as a collective is currently on our exciting self-build refurbishment project.
We are refurbishing the new place by as much volunteer labour as possible. Whatever your skill-level we hope you'll come along and help out.

This is a great opportunity to make new friends, get some exercise and do some team building. You could also learn a lot about construction, architecture, refurbishment, DIY, surveying and project management.
No experience necessary - full training, protective gear, travel expenses and lunch provided. We welcome all abilities, all genders and all nationalities to help with the build. However we do ask that you are at least 16 years old due to the nature of the project.
Opening times for Refurbishment Volunteering:
We now need labourers midweek during the daytime as well as at the weekend.
Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm
Saturday to Sunday 11am to 5pm
We'd love to see you on these volunteer days - no need to bring anything but your energy and enthusiasm!
