“I feel I have a place and purpose that connects me to the outside world. Volunteering gives me a great deal of pleasure and I feel I can find a way to contribute to society in a positive way, which also influences my creativity so it’s a continuing cycle. The Whitworth has been a very influential part of my life as an artist and my love for this gallery grows every time I step into the grounds.” – Julie, Whitworth Volunteer.
