Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) is calling for expressions of interest for volunteers to support the gallery through assisting with front-of-house operations, customer service and sales.

Volunteers Maria Suarez, and Britt Ballisager

Volunteering is a fantastic opportunity to further develop your skills, support your studies, meet arts industry contacts and immerse yourself in all things art.

Volunteers provide front of house service and are the first point of contact for visitors to the Gallery. Gallery Volunteers must be personable and knowledgeable with a genuine interest in artists and current exhibitions, enjoy meeting and interacting with people and be willing to learn and use our Point-Of-Sale system, work autonomously and within a team environment

Gallery Volunteers may assist with the physical installation of exhibitions and/or special events. This may include packaging of artworks that have been sold during an exhibition, assisting the installation team during bump-in and/or bump-out of exhibitions or providing a meet and greet role at launch events.

NRCG Volunteers are integral in promoting gallery programming and are responsible for monitoring and keeping artwork safe while the gallery is open.


Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one 4 – 5 hour shift per fortnight. NRCG is currently recruiting for volunteers on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays: 1pm – 4pm and Sundays: 9.30am-1pm

If you are interested in volunteering with the Gallery please apply through our website nrcgballina.com.au or visit the Gallery reception to pick up an application form.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. If volunteering was so great everyone would be doing it.
    If you were actually appreciated as if your were a working person it would do volunteering a great service.
    You are a working person as you are working.
    To volunteer there is a great inquisition as to why you just want to volunteer.
    I doubt there is the same inquisition of the company who wants to put on volunteers instead of employing people?
