Composite is currently working towards establishing a new distribution collection of artists’ moving image work based in Narrm Melbourne. The Composite Collection is conceived as a public resource to map and consolidate a lineage of moving image culture in Australia; to make this work publicly accessible through distribution; and to enhance the national and international profile of this work through exhibition and touring projects. We also aim to generate academic scholarship and discourse through writing, research and publishing to provide a critical and historical context for understanding this body of work.


Composite has an ongoing volunteer and internship program, with our volunteers and interns playing a vital role in the daily operations of the venue.

Becoming a volunteer or intern at Composite is a great opportunity for anyone seeking experience in a dynamic artist led organisation involving both practical and critical activities and a unique opportunity to be involved in Melbourne’s contemporary art scene.

An internship or volunteer role at Composite can comprise of anywhere between 3 hours to a couple of days per week. Volunteers commit to gallery sitting for a minimum of 3 hours per fortnight and assist with opening night and special event functions, front of house and gallery minding, as well as basic administration. Interns take on a higher level of responsibility and are involved with exhibition and project management, marketing and communications initiatives, along with general gallery administration.

If you are interested in gaining gallery experience or just want to be involved please contact hello@composite.org.au with a short description of yourself, your experience, skills and availability.
