PAC needs your help!


Pawtucket Arts Collaborative is an entirely volunteer-run organization. Volunteering is a great opportunity for our members to works hands on in an art community and connect with a diverse and fun group of dedicated people.  Check out our current volunteering opportunities:

Gallery Sitters Ongoing and schedule flexible

Gallery Sitters work closely with the exhibits, deal with the public during open hours, allow/encourage visitors to fill out membership forms, sell art, and possibly handle some light data entry work. Shifts are 2 hour blocks with slots on weekdays and weekends. Wonderful opportunity to work within a gallery especially for students, freelancers or retirees. As an added bonus- gallery sitters will receive the opportunity to showcase an original piece of their artwork in the Members’ Gallery!

An online calendar indicates when gallery sitters are needed to fill gallery hours. Click here to view the sitter calendar. To sign up for sitting, first find the day/time slots that are not yet assigned and then send email to Frank at listing the slots you can fill. Please do not try to edit the calendar yourself.

Exhibit Installation Quarterly/based on event schedule

Ever wondered about the process of how all of the Mill Gallery’s artwork gets arranged in the space and up on the walls in time for an exhibit? Assist in the hanging of shows with a great group of volunteers. Some gallery/art handling experience preferred but not necessary.

Art-pickup Supervisor Quarterly/based on event schedule

We are looking for one individual to specifically oversee and organize the pickup of all Art by Artists after shows. Responsibilities would involve organizing the paperwork, being available during pickup dates and calling/emailing artists to pick up their pieces. Schedule flexibility around the shows a must for this position.

Marketing/PR Ongoing

This is a great opportunity for anyone savvy with newsletters, advertising, online marketing and the like. A great place for business, communication, and advertising recent grads or those wanting to expand their resumes!

Membership Ongoing

Are you organized and good at data entry? A great salesperson who loves the PAC and wants to spread the word? Do you like to talk to people at parties and events? Any of these skill sets would be welcome in Membership, both in attracting new members and also keeping established ones.

Grant Writing Ongoing

A non-profit organization depends on grants for our lifeblood and we always welcome volunteers with any background in the grant writing process, or an interest to learn! This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants a career in the non-profits.

Education Ongoing

Do you have a skill or technique and want to teach a workshop? Do you want to reach out to high schools and colleges? This could be a great area to shine. Current students in Art Ed programs, retired teachers, and any artisans with a great teachable skill encouraged to contact us.

Reception Quarterly/based on event schedule

Do you have a great specialty dish? An amazing cookie recipe? A great nose for wine? Or a love to set up cheese plates? Table presentation? We always need volunteers to provide help and provisions for our gallery events.
