Our charity, The Friends of the Huntley Archives at LMA (FHALMA) is run on a voluntary basis and we hope that the range of roles and opportunities will encourage individuals to develop current and refresh new skills. Our volunteers make a huge difference to the heritage sector. If you have an interest in history, the arts, cultural heritage, education, diversity and community we may have a role for you. Our goal is that volunteers will support their own professional or personal development aims, gain a rewarding set of experiences, grow in confidence, and potentially gain future employment. We also hope that we can offer a space to meet new people who share interests and values.
Oral History project
As part of the legacy for the No Colour Bar project, we are keen to capture on film some of the thought-provoking stories behind the artists that appeared in the show. The oral histories will be able to contribute to the Huntley Archive collection at LMA.To find out more about about how you can get involved, what skills you are looking for and what you can offer, please get in touch. See the oral history interviews with three artists in our section on Artists Talks.
