Become a volunteer

Volunteer your services and become part of the public face of the Gallery.

Volunteers are an essential part of the life of the Gallery, providing various types of support.

Volunteer guides

Our guides provide wide-ranging expert tours of the collection and exhibitions to visitors of all kinds – both adults and children – including school groups, Gallery members, corporate clients and VIPs. Specially trained guides also assist with our access programs for people with disabilities.

We are currently not recruiting new volunteer guides.

Community ambassadors

Community ambassador volunteers support the Gallery through offering guided tours in community languages and promoting the Gallery through community organisations and publications. At present community ambassadors offer tours once a week in Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese and Korean languages.

We are currently not recruiting new community ambassadors.

Task Force

Task Force volunteers provide invaluable service to the Gallery including staffing exhibition ticketing desks and serving food and beverages in the cafe in our members lounge and at members events. They also occasionally assist with mail-outs and other administrative duties.
