We are looking for enthusiastic, energetic volunteers to lend a helping hand on an ongoing basis at our pop-ups, at community festivals, and other events. Criminal record checks are mandatory but completely free through the Volunteer Centre. We can’t wait to meet you!

Please fill out our Volunteer Registration Formand send it back to us by mail or in person. 

Get Involved

If you enjoy art, like working with people and want to gain diverse experience in a community organization, contact the Gallery and apply to become a volunteer. All volunteers must participate in training and orientation as well as complete an RCMP criminal record check.

Gift Shop 

In the Gift Shop, volunteers generally work a 2 to 5 hour shift weekly. You must be comfortable working with the public, enjoy art, deal with sales, track visitors, register people for art classes and more. It’s a fun, creative environment and great work experience.


For events, volunteers help with poster distribution, set up and take down, serving food and beverages and more.

Children and Youth Programs 

For those who enjoy working with children or youth and participating in community events, the Gallery often has volunteers assist with school tours of the Gallery or other art activities. There are also opportunities to represent the Gallery or offer an art activity at special events out in the community.

Join a Committee

From time to time, the Gallery needs volunteers to participate on a committee either year-round or on an ad hoc basis. Contact the Gallery to see if there are currently openings on any of our committees.
