Becoming a Volunteer
RMIT Gallery’s volunteer program provides motivated individuals with the opportunity to gain an understanding of arts administration and the day to day management of contemporary art galleries.
We are interested in applications from volunteers with a diverse range of skills. Knowledge of art is helpful, but not essential.
We require well presented, outgoing people, capable of multitasking, with excellent communication skills. Full induction and training will be provided to suitable applicants. Working at RMIT Gallery provides volunteers with the chance to enhance their resume and showcase their capabilities and enthusiasm to future employers.
Our program is open to a variety of applicants:
Internships: suited to those completing a tertiary degree in arts management, curatorship, education, public relations, communications or business administration. Interns will undertake a full or part-time volunteer placement at the gallery for a set period, completing an appointed project or series of related tasks.
Work experience: suited to secondary school students who wish to gain a week or fortnight’s experience, working on light administrative tasks, reception and exhibition research. Places per year are limited.
Regular volunteers: those able to donate their time on a regular weekly basis will be able to undertake gallery sitting, reception, and wide variety of administrative and research tasks.
Event staff: RMIT Gallery offers a range of public programs and exhibition openings throughout the year that require staff to serve food and drinks, and assist in various aspects of the function. These are a great opportunity to meet artists, curators and other members of the arts community and gain first hand experience in event management.
