Job description

Join us in this unique opportunity to help categorise and geo-locate pre-1900 watercolours to be published on our website - The Watercolour World,  a digital project visually recreating the world before photography.

The Watercolour World (TWW) is a UK registered charity, working with public and private collections worldwide to aggregate pre-1900 watercolours of record on to a single geographically-indexed website.  TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are Joint Patrons of The Watercolour World.

The primary objectives of TWW are:

  • To protect, preserve and make publicly available the documentary information contained in the global watercolour collection;
  • to aggregate digitised watercolour images in the UK and international collections, both public and private, onto one topographically-indexed website;
  • to digitise, and encourage the digitisation of documentary watercolours in the UK and internationally;
  • to encourage the participation of the public in sharing information and helping identify unrecognised images.

Volunteer Role:

TWW is seeking to strengthen its team of Cataloguing Volunteers and assist the Collections Department in the processing and collating of information from collections on to our database system.  The role includes sorting through images of documentary watercolours, identifying those relevant to the project, researching their location and categorising and tagging them by content and subject matter.
