Welcome to the Arts and Heritage Society of 2019-20!! The committee are really looking forward to all the fun and opportunities this year is going to bring and to meeting all of our new, and existing, members!


Are you interested in all things arts and heritage? We are a society dedicated to bringing those at Edinburgh University and beyond interested in museums, galleries and historic buildings together. Are you interested in the arts and the opportunities it has to offer? Preparing for a career in the heritage sector? We'd love to hear from you!


Following our recent EGM we rebranded ourselves from the 'Arts and Heritage Volunteer Group' to the 'Arts and Heritage Society' to fully encompass the wide range of things the society has always offered. We provide volunteering opportunities to cater to interest in/dedication to the arts and heritage industries as well as career development workshops and employment opportunities. However, as a society, we also hold socials every month so all you like minded people can get together and have fun!


The aim of the 2019-2020 Committee is to hold multiple monthly meet ups - whether that be a trip, a museum/gallery visit or a social night out. Look out for updates across our social media concerning times and dates. While based in Edinburgh we aim to provide multiple trips further afield throughout the calendar year as well as journal opportunities in the new year.


You can get involved with us through Facebook, Instagram or Twitter! Also, be sure to sign up to our mailing list to hear about everything we are doing and enjoying this year or contact one of our committee members by emailing


Nb: No membership or payment is necessary - everyone is welcome to join, get involved, and turn up!
