Having been in ‘hibernation’ for some time, THE LUMA GROUP is ready to deliver more great workshops and employ more local artists, so we have to bring some new people on board. We need 3 trustees and 1 or 2 volunteers who have a few hours a week to spare.


So if you like the look of what we are trying to achieve and feel you have some relevant skills please get in touch via the CONTACT page. In particular we are looking for someone with fundraising experience and someone with contacts in corporate HR. And if you have delivered arts-based workshops and would like to be on our list of freelancers, please get in touch.
