At Peacock Visual Arts we always need volunteers to help out in all aspects of our work, from serving drinks at events, to assisting artists in realising their projects. We also regularly need volunteers to help us distributing publicity material (posters/flyers) across Aberdeen city centre. If you are interested we'd love to hear from you!
