Volunteering with The Africa Centre

The Africa Centre is a charitable organisation run by a small team of full-time staff. This means we do not always have the capacity to serve our communities at the levels that we would want to. We, therefore, welcome any help that we can get through volunteering.


To volunteer with us for anything, you first need to register here.


Please see all available opportunities below or check this page regularly to find out about any new opportunities. For enquiries, please email volunteer@africacentre.london or call us at 020 8004 6436.

Wanted: Researcher – African Art & Interior Design


As we draw nearer to the commencement of enabling works for the development of our new headquarters, we are starting to think about its interior decoration and furnishing. Our aim is to identify and involve African and diasporan artisans and creatives in curating an authentically African experience within our new home. This is no easy task so we are looking for a volunteer to work closely with the Africa Centre Chair to research suppliers of contemporary African art and furniture from both the continent and its global diaspora.


Your tasks will include creating a list of well researched and reputable high calibre artists and furniture makers or suppliers whose works will integrate with the design and aesthetics of our new home.


For more details, see below. Please note that you will need to register with us as a volunteer first here.


**The deadline for applications is Friday 23 October at 5 pm.**
