Making Theatre Gaining Skills participants are often able to join us after their course has ended as a volunteer or Peer Mentor. There are often opportunities to work with us as a volunteer. We also welcome people with specific skills to share with others including construction, carpentry, dressmaking, graphic design etc. From time to time we can offer paid internships which are generally advertised on Facebook, local job websites and industry networks.
