Volunteer Program | WORKAROUND – Women Design Action
Volunteer at RMIT Design Hub as part of our upcoming exhibition WORKAROUND.
Gain valuable skills, develop new networks and expand your knowledge in a broad range of design fields. Volunteers are essential to Design Hub’s exhibition program, assisting with the day-to-day running of our spaces as the public face of our building.
As part of WORKAROUND volunteers will have the opportunity to assist in delivering a dynamic program of daily episodes.
