Employment and Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer and Internship Opportunities
The IMA is always looking for enthusiastic people to join our Volunteer Program.
Being a volunteer at Australia’s oldest independent contemporary art gallery is a rewarding role and a great introduction into the contemporary art world in Australia. You will have the chance to meet the IMA staff, exhibiting artists, and members of Brisbane’s arts community. IMA Volunteers receive many incentives, including; regular training and tours from curators and artists, complimentary IMA publications, and a letter of referral.
The IMA is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, the Australian Government through Australia Council for the Arts, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian Federal, State, and Territory Governments. The IMA is a member of Contemporary Art Organisations Australia.
The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
