Please complete the application form if you’re up for getting involved.

Stokes Croft China

Stokes Croft China finances the community work of the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft. We decorate fine English bone china, using salvaged ceramic transfers from a bygone era. In our local studio and factory we create our own designs, and work with commissions and bespoke wholesale orders. Profits from our lovely china shop go directly back into supporting PRSC’s community activism and artistic activities.

China Shop Assistants
• Help us make and maintain displays of the art made here.
• Speak with the customers and make the shop a good atmosphere to be in.
• Pack orders and generally support the logistical running of the shop.

Events Team

The PRSC offers an affordable venue for political, cultural or community activities. To keep the hire costs down we are building a volunteer events team that can help take bookings; offer venue viewings and inductions to event managers, and help out on site during the events. We also run our own in-house events (such as the People’s Art Fair and the School of Activism) designed to empower and inspire and we are always looking for volunteers to help plan, promote and manage these events.

Events assistants
• Help to staff the cafe/bar; assist with workshops; invigilate exhibitions; help out at the opening nights etc.
• Handling inquiries from artists and event managers, giving viewings and inductions.
• Helping to promote our in-house events. We need help creating content for social media, creating listings and putting up posters.

Painting & Maintenance

Helping to keep PRSC and the neighbourhood clean, tidy and functioning. We are aiming to organise regular working sessions over the year, get in touch with us to find out when the next one is.

Maintenance assistants

Murals & Walls

Help paint colourful, topical, political artwork around the city as & when, with activities ranging from painting over tags and touching up murals to full-blown, large scale artworks (with the opportunity to work mid-large scale, alone and in teams on walls and pieces in central locations).
