Oxygen Art Centre relies on a committed crew of community members and volunteers to keep our doors open and our programming vibrant and free for the public to attend. Our Board of Directors is not only a governance board, but also works on a volunteer basis to support the centre’s operations, while volunteers lend their time and skills in myriad ways, from exhibition installation to site maintenance to social media.
GALLERY HOST TUITION CREDIT PROGRAM
Our Exhibition and Residency program relies on volunteer gallery hosts to provide regular open-hours during exhibitions. Every hour that you volunteer as a gallery host can be exchanged for $8 off any art education course, covering up to 50% of the course tuition. Gallery hosting is an excellent way to get involved with the Oxygen community, spend time with contemporary art, and make your Oxygen art education courses even more affordable! To get onto our volunteer mailing list or inquire about the program, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
