Novas CIC – Volunteer and / or Exhibit

The Novas Contemporary Urban Centre is a new idea for the 21st Century. An Arts, Cultural and Social enterprise, the Novas Contemporary Urban Centre will reflect the themes of contemporary life in the urban environment, particularly from the point of view of marginalised and excluded communities.

The Novas Contemporary Urban Centre – Liverpool is due to open its doors towards the end of 2007 in preparation for Liverpool being the European Capital of Culture in 2008. The venue has been developed over a period of seven years, in partnership with local community groups and the City. It covers 170,000 sq feet within a Grade II listed converted warehouse in a prominent location close to the city centre, Toxteth and China Town.

As a not-for-profit organisation Novas Arts depends on the support of dedicated, creative, talented and enthusiastic volunteers.

We are currently seeking volunteers to assist with all aspects of our artistic programme, including office duties. If you would like to contribute to the success of the Novas Contemporary Urban Centre Liverpool, please email your CV outlining your recent experience and a short covering letter to the Gallery Manager:

The Novas Group provides community support services to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in society. We deal with issues such as, homelessness, the rehabilitation of offenders, mental health awareness, domestic violence and people experiencing drug and alcohol dependency problems.

Novas Arts aims to bring these themes to a wider audience through an outstanding programme of exhibitions at the CUC Liverpool.

Novas Arts operates an open submissions policy. We welcome submissions from artists who have experienced homelessness or whose work is concerned with social justice or social inclusion. Please contact us by phone, post or email, including examples of your work.
