The Exchange

We are constantly looking to expand our volunteer family here at the Art Hostel. We are looking for individuals who are friendly, sociable and proactive to help out. Activities will depend on the shift, however it will mainly be housekeeping, cleaning and reception. It is a great opportunity to explore West Yorkshire and to submerge yourself in the art scene Leeds has to offer. If this interests you give us a shout !
