What do volunteers do?
Volunteers form an important part of our organisation and do a wide variety of things depending on their interests. You could be greeting visitors to the gallery, catering for exhibition openings, cleaning/maintaining the gallery spaces, designing flyers and newsletters, helping with exhibition curation and hanging, getting involved with media and marketing or sitting on our Committee of Management.
The majority of our volunteers manage the gallery for a designated number of hours per day (3 or 4 hour sessions depending on the time of the year). We value any time you can afford whether it be one session a month or 3 sessions a week. We provide full training and can pair you with another volunteer if you’re a bit unsure.
