In addition to our awards and events, ADH offers volunteering and mentoring opportunities.
Reach out to us any time for collaboration and support in your dress and textile history endeavours.
Please send your note of interest stating which event you are interested in assisting, plus a CV to email@example.com
Applicants are expected to become an ADH member on acceptance of a role, if not already a member.
If you require any reasonable adjustments to apply, please advise the relevant contact accordingly.
The ADH is a volunteer operated charity, committed to fairness, diversity, and equal opportunity. We value bringing people together and providing opportunities for personal career growth. ADH roles are conducted and managed virtually, therefore worldwide applications are welcome. Limited financial assistance is made available to committee members who operate ADH conferences at the relevant venue.
ADH is now operating mentor matching to support early career dress and textile scholars and professionals, helping to gain confidence and expand their skills and profiles. Mentors can assist with networking opportunities and research guidance.
If you are an early career candidate or an established dress history scholar, curator, conservator, maker, or professional and would like to engage with mentoring on a 1:1 basis, please review, complete, and submit the relevant application form via email to Maria Ida De Ioanni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions, please contact the ADH Secretary as above.
Please note: the ADH mentoring scheme is intended to support early career candidates who do not currently have equivalent assistance from an institution. The scheme is therefore not open to applicants currently studying with a university or other higher education body. However, we are always happy to offer subject specialist advice and direction.
