Here at PLACE, our volunteer team are involved every day, in all sorts of ways: greeting visitors, setting up exhibitions, researching and writing for the blog and much more. We want to encourage more people of all ages to get involved with the organisation, and to help us develop our projects across Northern Ireland.

We have a number of current opportunities:
