Volunteer with us to uncover and explore local histories and enrich our archive. Connect with other people with a shared interest in local social and cultural heritage and share your knowledge of the neighbourhood as we work towards the launch of the Fire Station Archive in 2018.
The Oral Histories Programme Volunteer will research and collect oral histories of contemporary and historical local relevance, supporting the development of an oral history collection to be housed in the SLG’s Archive and ensuring otherwise under-represented histories are documented and accessible.
The Archive and Collections Volunteer will support the Archivist and Records Manager to preserve, sort, catalogue, digitise and make accessible, the SLG Archive.

We are particularly interested in individuals who are from backgrounds under-represented in galleries and heritage.
The Volunteer Programme is part of the South London Gallery’s new strand of heritage programming, Evidence of Us. Through long-term intergenerational projects, Evidence of Us seeks to position people as experts in their own heritage by foregrounding local knowledge and supporting otherwise under-explored histories to be uncovered. Sitting alongside the developing Fire Station Archive, Evidence of Us will offer a wide range of creative and discursive engagements with heritage. Co-developed with artists and local communities, the programme will critically reconsider who has access to heritage and support people to take agency and write their own narratives.
