Position description: 

Special Events volunteers with Serving It Right Certification are needed to provide their skills during our special events and opening receptions where alcohol is served.

Opening receptions take place 6 - 10 times a year from our gorgeous gallery location on Granville Island, and usually take place Thursday evenings from 6 - 8 PM.

Volunteer duties take place at our serving station, and volunteers can expect to be interacting with many guests and artists throughout the evening.

Sometimes we host special events, fundraisers and satellite exhibitions at different locations, you could be asked to help with ShowOff our live painting event or our gala fundraisers, if these interest you!

You'll work alongside the Gallery and Volunteer Coordinator, or Fine Art Consultant, and sometimes with other Special Events Volunteers, depending on which event you participate in.

  • Adhere to Serving It Right guidelines and serving sizes
  • Scout the gallery for glassware during slower serving times
