The Chinese Culture Center (CCC) is seeking Gallery & Art Programs intern/volunteer to assist with our Visual Art Center, gallery shop, and art programs at our Center located at the heart of San Francisco. The CCC Visual Art Center presents contemporary art, innovative artists, and interactive communications. As the first impression of our visual arts, the role is integral to our public engagement strategy to elevate the underserved and give voice to equality. We want everyone to leave with a positive impression and understanding about our contemporary arts and vibrant community.
You will work closely with the gallery staff and other members of the team.
Intern/Volunteer will learn about and introduce emerging artists and designers in our gallery and shop. Great for a person who loves introducing and sharing culture and arts to others in a meaningful way and challenging stereotypes. Also great for people who want to be involved with promoting local artists and designers, and unique items.
Duties include but are not limited to:
Gallery engagement and support: greeting visitors, engaging the public, and interacting with people about the current exhibition, art, and the community
Providing support to educate on the Center, Chinatown, and discussion about art in low-income neighborhoods, contemporary art, challenging stereotypes, and other topics
Give tours to small groups of visitors, schools, and community groups as needed
Assist in gallery shop: make sales, keep track of and promote local artists and designers
Work with staff on merchandising and marketing (if applicable)
- Work with staff in art program coordinating
General office administrative duties as needed (phone, email, etc.)
Our Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm. It will be great if intern/volunteer can have a stable and consecutive working schedule during the program (usually a consecutive 2-3 month long with 2-3 days a week stable attendance), as we hope all interns/volunteers can have sufficient time and opportunities to work closely with the staff and participate and get fully involved in the programs.
