We would like to thank our amazing Brent 2020 volunteers for all the hard work and time dedicated toward the success of the programme.

Brent 2020 offered a range of opportunities to the volunteers - like a glorious pick ‘n’ mix - available at different times and locations across the borough. From getting hands-on to help us deliver the opening event RISE; supporting creatives to deliver their Culture Fund projects; interviewing locals for the No Bass Like Home Reggae Archive; to welcoming the community to the first Brent Biennial. The pioneers got vocal by spreading the word in their community; got practical with admin support behind the scenes; and sparked a smile, meeting and greeting guests at public events.

Volunteers were also offered free training and support so that everyone was happy and confident in their roles, alongside networking and social events to kick-back, connect, and switch to off-duty mode.
