Newcastle Art Gallery relies on the help of a small and dedicated team of volunteers to provide children and family programs such as ArtCart and school holiday activities, and free guided exhibition tours to school groups and other interested parties.
There are two types of volunteers at Newcastle Art Gallery.
The Gallery Guides program recruits every two years, and is a long term commitment (3 years+). Guides meet and train weekly, and commit at least 2-3 shifts per month to provide Guided tours and information to audiences of all ages.
The ArtCart volunteer program recruits every six months, and is a mid to long term commitment (12 months+). Volunteers meet and train every two months, and commit at least one shift a fortnight to support Gallery staff at special Education events, weekend art activities and school holiday events.
Our volunteers dedicate their time and energy to the Gallery, and without them we would not be able to present the rich program that we currently do.
To find out more about these positions, or to register your interest in being considered for the next round of volunteer recruitment, please send a current CV and a cover letter to email@example.com
New intake of volunteer Gallery Guides
We are currently preparing for a new intake of volunteer Gallery Guides. If you're experienced or interested in education and/or visual arts, and you can commit to Newcastle Art Gallery for a period of three years or longer, we'd love you to register your details to apply for an interview.
You will need to be available to start the Gallery Guide training schedule in November and December 2013. Please email your name, phone number, and address, with a short message about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org
