Help us share art with our community! From leading public tours to guided art activities, volunteers are central to the Currier Museum of Art’s mission of connecting art with diverse audiences, from its neighborhood to international and digital visitors. Be part of facilitating exciting conversations and experiences around art!

Volunteering at the Currier offers unique opportunities to learn more about art; engage with our global audience; and join an active, welcoming organization. Volunteers can choose from a variety of roles, both internal and audience-focused, and enjoy an ongoing, engaging training program.

Please note: The Frank Lloyd Wright training course this spring is at capacity, and we are no longer accepting applications.

Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of 50 hours over the year, with openings available throughout the year, on most days of the week. This is a great way to connect with art, join a lively learning community, and support positive community programs in Manchester.

History of the Guild of Volunteers
As early as 1970, volunteer docents were trained to conduct tours of the Currier Museum’s collection. In May 1982, the Guild of Volunteers was formally organized to provide “provide volunteer personnel to carry out such projects, programs, and activities as designed and requested by the museum staff and departments.”

Today the Guild has approximately 100 members donating more than 6600 hours of their time annually to support all aspects of the museum’s operations.

We strive to create accessible experiences, with inclusive programing for all who come into our institution, including our volunteers.  By celebrating diversity, we intend to build strong community connections and increase visibility for the culturally expansive city of Manchester.
