Gallery Hosts welcome guests into the Bleeding Heart Art Space in 2 hour shifts. Hosts work in pairs, meet great people and enjoy an atmosphere of peace and beauty. Not a bad way to spend some time, hey?

If you haven't volunteered before, you can simply sign up for an available shift using the button above, and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to complete your volunteer profile with any additional information we need.

If you are a regular, you can use the SignUp.com button above to claim your next shifts. You can even trade shifts from their website! You don't need an account to use VolunteerSpot, just provide them with your email address or a Facebook login and you're good to go. 

What are the duties of a Gallery Host?

Hospitality is the first priority of gallery hosts.

Your job is to ensure visitors feel welcome and cared for at Bleeding Heart Art Space. This includes a friendly hello upon arrival, but also plenty of quiet time and space for our guests as they interact with the art, or simply take a moment to be still. Gallery Hosts may also sweep or mop the floor, ensure there is a supply of toilet paper in the washroom or anything else you might consider when welcoming guests into your own home.

As a Gallery Host you will familiarize yourself with the current show (materials are on site), track the number of visitors and count donations that have come in on your shift. Tools are provided to handle all of these tasks simply on site, in our volunteer resource binder.

When are shifts?

Usually, shifts are Saturdays from 11 AM-1 PM and 1-3 PM.

Some special shifts come up during festivals and events.

Other ways to give your time

We are looking for help with art show installs, gallery cleaning, exhibit and event photography, blog and social media content and marketing. If you have these or other skills you'd like to offer, email volunteers@bleedingheartartspace.com.
