Art Stage this year was from 11 to 15 Jan. It is usually my favourite big scale art exhibition, next to the Affordable Art Fair. I helped out for three days, doing front-of-house, gallery sitting and patrolling.
The art works this year were noticeably less arresting. There weren’t big installations or controversial works that caught my attention unlike the black goldfishes last year, or even the many sculptures the year before. Nevertheless, I did enjoy my volunteering experience this year so much more because the management was great.
The biggest takeaway was learning the importance of crisis management, and also how important the first aid kit was.
