Volunteer opportunities

The Gallery is supported by a strong team of volunteers who perform important roles in various areas of the Gallery's operations.

Curatorial volunteers (usually final-year or postgraduate art history students) provide assistance to specific curatorial projects. For information please submit an inquiry.

Volunteer guides provide visitors and pre-booked special interest adult groups with informative tours of special exhibitions and collection displays at both the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art. 

To join our program, those people who have expressed interest participate in a selection process. This is followed by a structured training program, conducted over a twelve month period. During this time, trainees must also undertake self-directed study and participate in regular assessment. On successful completion of the training program, trainees join the Volunteer Guide team and commit to a roster and an on-going learning program.  

Intakes of trainee guides occur on a needs basis, usually every few years. For further information please submit an inquiry.
