The City of Albany is seeking volunteers with a passion for arts, culture and the community as the finish line comes into view for the Town Hall redevelopment.

The City has called for expressions of interest for gallery volunteer positions available at the Town Hall which is scheduled to reopen in December.

They will be required to understand a variety of art techniques and capable of discussing them with the general public.

Training will be provided to ensure volunteers feel competent in the role.

Knowledge of the history of the Albany Town Hall and the City’s art collection will be provided to ensure an enriching experience for visitors.

The Town Hall is set to be the Great Southern’s flagship visual arts presentation venue after extensive construction works that started in October.

With high-specification galleries and a multi-functional floor space, the venue will support a range of arts, cultural and civic events.

Volunteers will also be taught how to handle occupational health and safety situations.
