Volunteer Program | Super Tight

Volunteer at RMIT Design Hub Gallery as part of our upcoming exhibition Super Tight. 

Gain valuable skills, develop new networks and expand your knowledge in a broad range of design fields. Volunteers are essential to Design Hub Galleries day-to-day running. They are the public face of our building and are integral to our exhibition and public programs. 

Volunteers will play an important role in the delivery of Super Tight and the exhibition's diverse public programs. Each week we will host a bar talk where an invited speaker will unpack ideas around spatial tightness, small footprint living, density, and more. There will also be regular workshops for students in the galleries
