Volunteer at the gallery

The Ferry Building Gallery is a community gallery run by the District of West Vancouver. Its success depends on a team of dedicated volunteers who share their time and talent to help us fulfil our mandate.

We strive to create an environment that allows our volunteers to give back to the community while developing their own skills, gaining valuable experience and finding personal fulfilment.
