Would you like to volunteer with us?
The Big Fag Press is an artist –run –initiative and much of the time, it is a labour of love rather than money. We’re always on the lookout for volunteers or people looking for long term work- placement situations about one or two days per week for several months.
It may seem like a strange organisation to come and work with, but because it is a very small operation, you will get hands-on experience in many areas.
We welcome interest from people who would like to develop skills in:
Administration and project management for the arts
Media strategy and marketing, including social media
Day to day website and online store maintenance
Graphic design, branding and promotion
Photography and short video making
Pre-press and offset lithographic print-making
Learning the operations of an Artist–Run–Initiative
You need to be:
Friendly, open-minded and willing to work as part of a team
Independent and not afraid to take on new tasks
Able to work in a collaborative environment
Driven and enthusiastic
Organised and punctual
Willing to accept our anti-bullying and anti-discrimination policy
You will get:
Hands on experience in any area of the operation you wish to
A friendly, happy team to work with
The opportunity to network within the arts community
General mentorship from people in the art world

Her work at the Big Fag has aided her arts administration and project management skills, and led to many other opportunities such as being on the board of Runway Australian Experimental Art, working as Exhibition Assistant for Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2013 and being a panellist in an Accessible Arts’ forum at the MCA about Supported Studio Networks.
If interested please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or just come to our Big FAG O Day on June 7>9
