Warlukurlangu Artists has hosted hundreds of volunteers from all over the world. Being a volunteer at Warlukurlangu Artists offers a unique opportunity to meet and engage with Aboriginal artists in their own environment.

Volunteers are welcome at Warlukurlangu Artists and are expected to work in the art centre. If you would like to come for a week, a month or even a year, don’t hesitate to contact us. Please let us know what your set of skills or interests are and we will work to ensure your experience with us is as mutually rewarding as possible.

Volunteers are expected to do all or some of the following tasks:

  • mixing paints
  • preparing canvas
  • stretching
  • priming
  • photographing artworks
  • taking care of senior artists
  • filing
  • making morning tea and lunches
  • keeping the office and grounds clean and tidy

Volunteering is unpaid, however, accommodation is provided for free.

Contact us for a Volunteers Information Pack.  The art centre closes from mid December to late January every year.  There is still plenty of work to do to prepare for the following year and it is still possible to volunteer during this time however there is no contact with artists.

Researchers

Warlukurlangu has also hosted many researchers who have come to the art centre to look at the archives and to speak to the artists as part of their research projects. Visiting researchers are welcome by prior appointment only and must be prepared to abide by appropriate protocols.
