Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) is calling for expressions of interest for volunteers to support the gallery through assisting with front-of-house operations, customer service and sales.
Volunteering is a fantastic opportunity to further develop your skills, support your studies, meet arts industry contacts and immerse yourself in all things art.
Our volunteers provide front of house service and are the first point of contact for visitors to the Gallery. Gallery volunteers must be personable and knowledgeable with a genuine interest in artists and current exhibitions, enjoy meeting and interacting with people, be willing to learn and use our point-of-sale system, and be willing to work both autonomously and within a team environment
Gallery volunteers may assist with the physical installation of exhibitions and/or special events. This may include packaging of artworks that have been sold during an exhibition, assisting the installation team during bump-in and/or bump-out of exhibitions or providing a meet and greet role at launch events.
NRCG volunteers are integral in promoting gallery programming and are responsible for monitoring and keeping artwork safe while the gallery is open.
We ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of one 4 – 5 hour shift per fortnight. NRCG is currently recruiting for volunteers on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays: 1pm – 4pm and Sundays: 9.30am – 1pm. A short induction into the Ballina Shire Council operational systems is also required.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Gallery please apply through our website nrcgballina.com.au or visit the Gallery reception to pick up an application form.
