Your support makes a difference.
We have approximately 35 volunteers, committed and enthusiastic people without whom we could not open our doors. They make a significant contribution to the museum in many different ways, including enhancing visitor experiences and assisting us with caring and conducting research on our collections. You can volunteer at the museum to learn new skills and to share your enthusiasm with like-minded people.
We are also very keen to welcome anyone interested in doing work experience or an internship with us. Please contact the Business Manager or Curator to discuss.
We are currently especially looking for volunteers to join our amazing shop. Our Shop Assistant volunteers greet visitors, process entry fees and shop sales, provide visitors with information about the museum, and keep the shop tidy. If you are interested in learning more about women’s role in history and today’s society, supporting a local non-profit, meeting new people or gaining retail skills, we would love to hear from you!
Volunteer Tiffany Malthouse works at the National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame each Wednesday morning. Tiffany is a young Western Arrente woman who has been working at the Museum since June 2014. Prospects after school can be a challenge for students with disabilities in Alice Springs, but after some healthy discussion with Tiffany about her preferences and talents the National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame became an opportunity for Tiffany. This working relationship has seen some wonderful outcomes for Tiffany and the National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame with Tiffany becoming an established and precious part of the National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame and working on her exhibition “Full Circle”, which opened on the 11th September 2015. This has been a wonderful new beginning for Tiffany and the National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame. As the relationship continues to flourish, this is one more vital opportunity for Tiffany after she finishes her time at school. This is also a vital opportunity for the National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame, as the relationship with Tiffany acts as a bridge between Indigenous history and pioneer history.
Tiffany’s latest work is the film “Hidden Beauty”. Tiffany says about the film: “This is the film that I made about the trees and the birds and everything else. I’m really proud of it.” Click here to view Tiffany’s film.
