A free 5 day placement with the 'Everything to Everybody' team at Library of Birmingham working with heritage, archives and the Shakespeare Library.

Everything to Everybody Summer School

The ‘Everything to Everybody’ project is offering a FREE Summer School 7th – 11th August for anyone aged 18-25 interested in getting hands on experience of delivering a heritage project and learning more about archives. If you’ve ever wondered what working in heritage or being an archivist is like, it’s a great opportunity to see behind the scenes at the Library of Birmingham, and to gain experience organising events, designing social media, supporting an exhibition, learning about digitising and cataloguing and more.

No previous volunteer or paid experience in libraries, archives, heritage or Shakespeare is necessary, just an interest and willingness to learn. Travel expenses and lunch each day will be reimbursed. Priority will be given to people not currently in education or regular employment, and who might face barriers to working in these areas or gaining internships. Priority will also be given to Birmingham residents. Good English language skills needed, but this does not need to be your first language.

For more information and how to apply by 16th June please click here: https://forms.gle/6axVfmZKo2XBq4EJ8 or please email Lauren, the project’s community engagement officer: [email protected] The deadline is 16 June.
