About Forest Cafe' and Artspace
The Forest Cafe' is a volunteer run artspace which aims to provide a friendly environment where arts events (music, poetry, visual arts, film etc.) can be put on free of charge. We also promote environmental and political issues through documentaries and literature and we are developing an educational programme.
The Forest Cafe' requires new volunteers to make and serve simple meals and snacks, and drinks such as coffee, tea and juices. Some cleaning is also required. The work is enjoyable and a great way to meet new people, especially as the cafe' has a freindly, relaxed atmosphere. For anyone interested in the arts, or environmental or political issues, it is a great place to make contacts with like minded people. there are discounts on food prices for volunteers, and free meals available during shifts. To see the results of the volunteers work come to some of our events!
