Volunteering at Tweed Regional Gallery

The Gallery is always keen to induct new volunteers to assist within the Gallery and the Margaret Olley Art Centre.

Volunteers work at the Gallery between the hours of 10am to 1:30pm and/or from 1:30pm to 5pm Wednesday to Sunday. Volunteers can be rostered on for two shifts a month or more depending on their availability.

The spectacular success of the Tweed Regional Gallery, its fundraising programs and community support would not be possible without the assistance of our valued volunteers.

Volunteering at the Gallery is an enjoyable way of contributing to your community. It's also a way to ensure that you see each exhibition on display and is a wonderful way to meet like-minded and interesting people. Volunteering at the Gallery also provides you with a better understanding and appreciation of the complex operations and functions of a professional and well-respected public art gallery.

Currently the Gallery has more than 180 volunteers who give their time and expertise. This figure includes our volunteer committee members.

Prospective volunteers are asked to complete the Volunteer application form 2018 (337kB PDF) and email it to tweedart@tweed.nsw.gov.au so that the Volunteer Co-ordinator can contact you with further information.
