"I really enjoyed my time as an usher at The Point, the experience has been important both to my studies in dance and my communication skills; particularly as a student, being able to meet new people and socialise with interesting artists and staff. It is a fun, easy environment to work in and a great way to see an eclectic mix of performances. I would highly recommend this role." – Jasmin McCarroll, volunteer usher
If you are a student or graduate, ushering is also a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself within an arts environment, which could potentially lead to further career development.
