NZ Sculpture OnShore relies on a large team of dedicated, enthusiastic and talented volunteers. Here are some of the ways that you could help:
Ambassadors provide security for the valuable artworks and serve as hosts for the exhibition. They watch over the artworks and provide basic information to visitors, the ambassadors adding enormously to visitors' enjoyment of the event.
Front of house volunteers welcome visitors at the gate on arrival, sell tickets and catalogues and answer the myriad of questions people might have. Front of House volunteers sometimes sign up as a group, sharing the same rostered shifts so they can not only enjoy each other's company, but share transport to the event as well.
Volunteers normally work in 3-4 hour shifts. Before they event, they receive information about the art works and have an opportunity to go on a pre-exhibition tour with Curators, Anna Hanson & Ross Liew to learn about the exhibits. There is a volunteer room where tea and coffee is available and belongings can be stored.
