The Lab hosts regular exhibition openings, workshops, and artist talks, and produces a range of public programs and events that require the assistance of a team of hardworking and dedicated volunteers. Though gallery invigilation is their primary duty, the people who keep our doors open are the key to our organisation. As the first point of contact for visitors, we aim to develop our team of volunteers into reliable and professional members of the art community.

Volunteers will work with the Manager/Director to contribute to the day-to-day functioning of the space.  The Lab is an exciting place, and volunteer staff are central to the operation and growth of the space.
