Every week is #NationalVolunteerWeek! Gianni Benato is a Volunteer Exhibition Host, pictured here with a visitor at @Carriageworks,
‘I became a Biennale volunteer because I wanted to find something fun and meaningful to do away from work that might benefit the community and (hopefully) me. I’ve enjoyed meeting the other volunteers, the staff and the visitors to the different Biennale locations and sharing our experiences of the various artworks.’ #biennaleofsydney

It’s #NationalVolunteerWeek!
Each day this week we’ll introduce you to one of our 500 spectacular volunteers. Ellie Clay is a Volunteer Exhibition Host, pictured here at @Carriageworks.
‘I signed up as a Biennale volunteer so I could really immerse myself in the exhibition and share the experience with members of the public. It's been wonderful to see so many amazing art works across the different venues; you develop a deeper appreciation for the work the more time you spend with it.’ #biennaleofsydney
