Volunteers are an integral part of SPACE. Volunteering can take many forms: gallery sitting, staffing the door at our events, prepping exhibition spaces, or making pancakes in the park. Volunteering at SPACE is a great way to meet people and engage with your local art community.

Our aim is to make the volunteer experience a win-win-win situation. We want to match volunteers with opportunities that engage their interests. We work with volunteers based on availability and desired time commitment. Some folks volunteer once a week, others volunteer once a year.
