Volunteers are a vital part of the ACCA team and take on a number of roles in the organisation. As the first point of visitor contact, ACCA volunteers have a key responsibility for customer service. Volunteers may also undertake administrative tasks involved in operating the reception or bookshop, conduct visitor surveys, assist with exhibition openings, public programs, events and research projects.

ACCA volunteers have the opportunity to build contacts and networks in the visual arts industry, gain an understanding of the daily operations of a public institution and learn about ACCA’s artistic and public programs.

Volunteer shifts are generally between 3-4 hours. Some volunteers have regular weekly or fortnightly shifts while others are involved on a more casual basis.  

We encourage applications from people who have completed or are studying art-related courses, have excellent communication skills and a passion for contemporary art.

To apply to become an ACCA volunteer, send your CV and a cover letter outlining why you want to volunteer at ACCA to info@accaonline.org.au. Your application will be sent to ACCA’s Visitor Services and Volunteer Program Manager.

Please note that we receive a large number of applications and therefore are not able to find a position for every applicant. Applications will be kept on file in case a position becomes available.

* Please note, to volunteer at ACCA you must be 18 years or older.

If you have any queries please contact info@accaonline.org.au.
