Volunteering at Four Corners

We define volunteering as an activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit Four Corners and the volunteer. Volunteering must be a choice freely made by each individual. We believe that volunteer rights should be upheld and aim to make volunteering a mutually beneficial experience.

Four Corners will provide volunteer lunch expenses and travel expenses within London. 

"From the darkroom to the gallery, my volunteering experience at Four Corners took a hands on approach from the word go. It was a fantastic opportunity to engage in all things photographic in a close knit, welcoming environment, gaining an active insight into the many facets of a creative career whilst meeting and working with an abundance of inspiring people. And I was never once asked to make the tea. I thoroughly recommend it." Chloe Edwards, former volunteer
