Volunteers perform an important role at Linden, providing essential support in the gallery’s daily operation, as well as assisting with openings, public programs, and community events. Volunteers bring enthusiasm, energy and experience to Linden, and in exchange, receive opportunities to develop their skills, grow their networks and gain industry insight on what makes a gallery tick.

Volunteers at Linden have the choice of undertaking weekly or fortnightly three-hour shifts on a regular basis over the course of six months. During this time, volunteers may be assigned duties such as sitting the Linden Projects Space, assisting with in-gallery events and exhibition openings, conducting research and administrative tasks, and helping with promotion and mail-outs.

In exchange, Linden offers its volunteers a range of mentorship and networking opportunities, including: hands-on experience in handling and installing artworks; the chance to meet Linden’s artists, curators, and art professionals; private tours of Linden’s exhibitions; direct engagement with the running of openings, events, and public programs; an invitation to a series of professional development workshops run exclusively for volunteers; and a written reference upon completion for those interested in pursuing a career in the arts.

Volunteering at Linden is a great opportunity for art students and lovers alike. Professional and/or academic experience in the arts is not a prerequisite. Volunteers receive orientation training for their role during their first shift. Volunteers are managed by Linden New Art’s Projects Space Coordinator. Linden strives to accommodate any specific areas of interest a volunteer may have, matching volunteers with tasks that best suit their skills and interests.

Applications for Linden’s Volunteer Program are accepted year-round. Applicants must be over 18 years of age and successful applicants will be required to provide a Working With Children Check (free for volunteers).
