Volunteer with us

We are always happy to hear from people interested in volunteering with us.  Please contact our Head of Education and Outreach, Joe Mahony, if you are interested in volunteering in any area of our activities

Visual Arts

An Lanntair’s exhibitions programme is a curated programme, led by our Head of Visual Arts and Literature, Roddy Murray. This means we actively research and select the artists and exhibitions that we feel contribute to the ethos and mission statement of the organisation and our programming principles.  We aim to programme exhibitions of national or international weight and complexity in the Main Gallery, and a celebration of local and emerging artists and the work from residencies and outreach programmes in the public spaces on the Mezzanine walkway and Café Bar areas.

The exhibitions programme is established up to three years in advance. Whilst the majority of our exhibitions develop from the above mentioned curatorial process, we are however always interested in receiving expressions of interest from individuals or agencies for exhibitions with us here at An Lanntair.

If you are interested in proposing an exhibition here at An Lanntair, we ask that you contact Roddy Murray, Head of Visual Arts and Literature  Roddy will then provide details on the process for submitting an expression of interest.

All proposals incoming to the visual arts team are reviewed three times a year and feedback is provided.

Performing Arts

An Lanntair’s Performing Arts Programme stretches across a diverse range of mediums and is led by our Head of Performing Arts and Cinema, Alex Macdonald.  At the heart of all our programming in the Performing Arts Programme there is a desire to present and promote Gaelic and traditional arts, whilst at the same time profiling the highest quality national and international acts for our audiences.   We programme everything from theatre, comedy, dance, music – traditional, classical, jazz and contemporary – and film in our multi-purpose auditorium here at An Lanntair.

The Performing Arts Programme is established up to two years in advance.  If you are interested in putting forward a proposal for our programme, we ask that you contact Alex Macdonald, our Head of Performing Arts and Cinema Alex will then provide you with details on the process for submitting a proposal.

All proposals incoming to the performing arts team are reviewed every six weeks.

Education and Outreach

An Lanntair has a diverse Education and Outreach Programme, working across the arts and with a plethora of groups; from pre-school to care homes for the elderly.  The education and outreach programme is led by our two Heads of Education and Outreach (job share), Moira Macdonald and Joe Mahony, and takes its inspiration from the visual arts, performing arts and literature programme on offer at An Lanntair.  The team develop projects and activities around the themes of the creative programme.  The team are also continuously consulting and researching audiences to support the programming process.  There are also special projects for which we have sought specific funding to develop new audiences.  For example, the most recent programme looking to build an arts-based dementia friendly community.

If you are interested in putting forward a proposal for our Education and Outreach programme or working with our team in any way, we ask that you contact Moira Macdonald, our Head of Education and Outreach Moira will then provide you with details on the process for doing this.
