I have thoroughly enjoyed volunteering at NAE. I developed some valuable and transferable skills. Putting the experience on my CV is great as I have been able to cite the experience in interviews etc.

I have always loved art but this has been beyond that, it was culture and diversity and politics. Through the different jobs I helped with, marketing, exhibits, workshops and discussions, I feel it really helps round all I have experienced in the last year...Thank you for helping me see a very different side of Nottingham, and England in general, that I would not have seen had I not helped at the NAE.

- Branna Elenz, NAE Volunteer, 2016
