Visit the Young Innovators blog 

We are the organisers of ‘Damifino!’ and ‘Played in Oxford’ events run for Museums at Night at the Museum of Oxford. We are responsible for programming, planning and running Museums at Night events for the Museum of Oxford.

If you are a responsible person, who likes working with people, and you would like to improve on a variety of skills; this volunteering opportunity would be the perfect match for you.

It is not necessary to have an interest in working in cultural heritage. We are a diverse group with different backgrounds. We want people with imagination, a lot of energy, and are keen on working as part of a group to improve together.

There are lots of benefits to volunteering with us. You will build on your communication skills and learn what is needed to run a successful event. You will improve your research skills and learn how to use social media for marketing. You will have the chance to work within a dynamic group, make new friends and most of all have fun! After your experience with us, you can keep lifetime’s skills and knowledge well honed.
