Volunteer in Israel - Umm el-Fahem Art Gallery

Category :: Israel
Share |
Established in 1996, the Umm El-Fahem Art Gallery aims to bring quality contemporary art to the city and region. In addition, the gallery aspires to serve as an artistic and culture center for the city, bring art awareness and appreciation to its population, and serve as a bridge between Jewish and Arab cultures in Israel.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to contribute to the gallery in a number of ways. Main duties include:

Research for Fundraising
Event Coordinating/Organizing
Website maintenance and content contribution
Routine gallery maintenance
Assistance with children's workshops

During the program, volunteers will work between 4-8 hours a day and will have 1-2 days off every week. During their time off, volunteers have the opportunity to visit the nearby attractions of northern Israel such as the cities of Haifa, Akko, Tiberius and Nazareth. Tel Aviv is one hour away by bus and most of the major cities are accessible by the many buses that service the Umm el-Fahem Junction. The gallery is ideal for independent, experienced professionals who enjoy quiet evenings in or out. There are many eateries in the city which are nice places to socialise with the locals and experience traditional Arabic food. For pubs and clubs Tel Aviv, Haifa, Nazareth, et al, are within easy reach by bus or taxi.
