Renew Newcastle relies on the support of volunteers. If you can assist with working bees, or in any other way please let us know. We are especially keen to get the support of tradespeople and others with professional skills that can assist with cleaning, repairing and improving vacant buildings.

Volunteer Roles

Opportunities to get involved through volunteering include:

:: Specialist tradespeople to assist with repair & maintenance of properties, both in new properties which we are activating for the first time, and on an ongoing basis

:: Participating in Working Bees to clean up properties and set up new projects – including painting, cleaning, odd jobs

:: Providing assistance at Events that we hold to get the community involved, such as Exhibition Openings, Special Events & Walking Tours.

:: Assisting the Project Participants with Professional Services such as accounting, marketing, design or printing – we are supporting new and emerging creative & community projects who can benefit from your expertise in their early days.

:: Working with the Project Participants directly, by gallery sitting, promotion & marketing, or event assistance – so you can see first hand what it is like to run a Renew Newcastle project.
