Stewards give a warm welcome, introducing the galleries as well as the family resources and activities available. By talking with visitors, Stewards help visitors to learn about and enjoy the story of G F and Mary Watts and get the most from their visit.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: • Providing the public face of the Artists’ Village by giving a warm welcome to visitors and being available as a point of contact throughout their visit. • Enhancing the visitor experience by engaging them, letting them know about the resources available and imparting knowledge about the collection where appropriate. • Safeguarding the collection. • Helping make the Artists’ Village accessible to all. • Ensuring visitors’ safety by acting in an appropriate way during an emergency situation. • Acting as an ambassador for the Artists’ Village and its activities on and off site.
