Join the MacLaren Volunteer Team

Thank you to the Museum and Gallery Studies students 2016/17 Georgian College.

Volunteers are invaluable to the MacLaren. If you are interested in getting involved, learning about the visual arts or gaining administrative experience, join our team of volunteers. Many types of opportunities are available, from leading gallery tours to helping organize special events. For example, Greeters welcome visitors and share information about current exhibitions and events. Gallery Guides lead tours for visiting school and community groups of all ages and abilities, encouraging dialogue around our exhibitions and our rich building history. MacLaren Ambassadors attend community events, such as festivals, fairs, children’s programmes and more, with the goal of raising awareness and promoting various Gallery programmes. Student volunteers gain their 40 hours of community involvement or complete their high school's co-op programme placement at the Gallery. Our volunteer programmes are open to people with or without art experience. Orientation and training are provided.

You are welcome to fill out the volunteer application form below and email to Peter Bogle at A follow-up interview will be arranged by the staff volunteer coordinator to determine your placement.
