The SUBSTATION is on the look-out for volunteers who are enthusiastic and dedicated to the promotion of visual and performing arts in its myriad forms.

Whether you want to gain experience in the industry, learn more about visual and performing arts, pass on your skills and knowledge to others or just want to socialise with people with similar interests – we want to hear from you!


Volunteers at The SUBSTATION are involved in a broad range of experiences. The benefits of volunteering include:

  • The development of new skills
  • Gaining insight into the daily operations of a leading multi-arts organisation
  • Meeting new people with shared interests
  • Building industry contacts and networks
  • Volunteer program events, activities and training

The SUBSTATION volunteers operate primarily in front of house roles, invigilating exhibitions, ushering for performances and assisting with private and corporate events.
