Opportunities for Emerge Members

The Reach invites Emerge members to a behind the scenes experience to help you gain professional development with hands-on practical skills to further your art education.

We are looking for volunteers to assist with our exhibition changeovers throughout the year. You will be working directly with the Assistant Curator on a wide variety of tasks from art handling (packing and installing), configuring space, lighting, vinyl removal and application, labeling and more.

We require reliable persons who are able to commit to specific days of work. Most days will be Monday to Friday and as needed the occasional weekend. A minimum half-day of work to volunteer is allowed but to get the most out of this learning opportunity a commitment through several days and up to the entire changeover period is ideal.

Experience with tools an asset but not required and attention to detail is a must. Volunteers will be trained and mentored through the exhibition changeover. This experience is a valuable asset on your CV and for your work as an artist, don’t miss out on this opportunity.
