The Soap Factory is proud to be supported by a team of over 400 volunteers and 20 interns each year. The dedication of volunteers over the three decades has built the Soap Factory into the region’s premier laboratory for emerging contemporary art. Over 25,000 individuals visit the galleries each year for programs from visual arts to performance, video and much more.
With ideas, labor, and passion from our volunteers, the Soap Factory has grown into a thriving community of artists. Volunteers help year-round with installation, special events, archiving, administrative tasks, landscaping, and maintenance. We welcome volunteers of all skill levels, and there are many on-site learning opportunities for all interested adults. We encourage all to apply, but remember that volunteers and interns must be at least 18 years old.
INTERNING AT THE SOAP FACTORY
Internships at The Soap Factory are a terrific way to explore working at a nonprofit art gallery. Every year we engage over 20 interns who work closely with our staff, board members, and exhibiting artists.
