Get involved – ARCHIVED

For our current recruitment opportunities, please visit this Recruitment page. From our wide-ranging Heritage Engagement workshops, to volunteering opportunities, there are lots of ways to get involved at Stanley Arts.



We’re pleased to announce that we have launched a heritage engagement programme at Stanley Arts, generously funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The programme celebrates the people, past and present, who have shaped South Norwood as we approach our 120th anniversary at Stanley Arts.

We invite people to share their memories, connect with the community and learn about local history through our series of heritage engagement events throughout the year.

Come by for anything from a quick look around an exhibition to a full family day out. Drop in on memory mapping events to share your stories, or get your hands dirty in our historic herb garden. Inclusivity is at the heart of our programme, and our new accessible refurbishments have opened up more of our historic building to the public so we can welcome everyone!

But before you go, why not quickly check out our Galleries which includes images from several of our previous projects; including the Freedom of Movement Photography Project and the Croydon Young Creatives ‘From Our Hearts to Yours‘ zine.

Our amazing volunteers help out with a vital range of specific projects across Stanley Arts’ buildings. We are always interested in hearing from energetic and enthusiastic individuals who would like to get involved – particularly if you have specific skills you would like to share.

From stewarding at events to helping with ongoing renovation works, your efforts will make a big impact on preserving the past and safeguarding the future of our magnificent home. However you choose to get involved, with your support Stanley Arts can continue to grow and develop as a unique venue for arts and performance in South London.

We are currently redeveloping our work experience programme and look forward to launching our new programme shortly. However, in the time being we are unfortunately unable to take on any students.
