Bunker Cartoon Gallery looking to recruit more friendly faces for one of coast’s top attractions
EXTRA volunteers are always needed at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery but with major plans in the pipeline they’re needed now more than ever.
Volunteers are vital to the success of the gallery and a diversity of roles are on offer.
The gallery is opendaily and volunteers are always needed to man the reception desk, with two shifts on offer from 10am–1pm and 1pm–4pm.
“You can work half days or full days, it’s very flexible. It’s about the number of hours people want to contribute,” explained gallery manager Margaret Cameron.
As Margaret points out, it can be a great opportunity to chat with the diverse range of
visitors who come from far and wide to view their collection.
“It’s a fun place to visit and for volunteers it’s a great way to do something that’s giving back to the community in a relaxed, friendly environment.
“The building is owned by council but with help of our volunteers we run it for the council, for the community.”
Volunteers are also encouraged to learn about the exhibitions so they can answer questions from visitors.
“You don’t need to walk people around the gallery but be willing to answer questions and engage with visitors as we’ve found visitors really love that when they can chat with somebody who knows about the works and the gallery,” Margaret said.
If you’re a hands-on person, you could also help with exhibition change overs.
The gallery is open daily from 10am–4pm and potential volunteers are invited to drop in and learn more about what’s involved or phone 6651 7343.
WELCOME: Happy volunteers are an important part of the Bunker Cartoon Gallery.
