Volunteer

PLOT09 is free and open to the public all summer long, and that requires a lot of manpower. Creative Time is a nonprofit and depends on the support of volunteers to keep its projects open. Volunteering for PLOT09 will be an unforgettable way to:
Learn about world-renowned art first-hand and share your knowledge with visitors to the show.
Meet artists, curators, Creative Time staff, and hundreds of other volunteers.
Get free swag from Creative Time!
Escape from the city to an island paradise with parks, buildings never before open to the public, and even a water taxi beach!


Volunteers will work as representatives of Creative Time and will be positioned throughout the exhibition, which spans the entire island. Duties will include direct audience engagement, supervision of the project sites, and assisting during special tours and events. Volunteers will also help with light set-up and clean up of the various project spaces at the beginning and end of shifts.

Exhibition hours are 11:00-4:00 on Fridays, and 12:00-6:00 on Saturdays and Sundays, from June 27-mid September (Hours and closing date subject to change).

All volunteers will be required to attend at least one onsite training session where you will learn about the artworks, the artists, and Governors Island itself. The more time you can devote to the show, the more rewarding the experience. For that reason, we are asking volunteers to commit to at least 3 shifts.

Creative Time has a 35-year history of animating and amplifying New York Cityís urban landscape and we couldnít do it without the tremendous support of our volunteers. Thank you gifts will include (but are not limited to):
A copy of the exhibition publication
Free Creative Time membership at the Friend Level
Invitation to an exclusive fall event
Fabulous Creative Time merchandise
