Great Place Exhibition Volunteer

Great Place Exhibition Volunteer

What is a Great Place Exhibition Volunteer?

The Great Place project will host a joint exhibition with Historic Environment Scotland called “Industry + Aesthetics.” The Grangemouth exhibition will combine a selection of survey photography from across Scotland with materials from the Falkirk area archives to examine the aesthetics of changing  industry and its effect on our built environment.

Exhibition volunteers will serve as the monitors and greeters for the exhibition – welcoming visitors and assisting at exhibition-related activities.

The Great Place project is a district-wide 2-year programme of activities celebrating the places, people, traditions, and industry of the Falkirk area with thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
