Brisbane Open House Volunteers

We couldn’t run our Brisbane Open House weekend without our valued volunteers. Since our inception in 2010, we have grown our volunteers from just a handful to hundreds.

We strive to continue offering our volunteers a valued experience while enabling them to give back and support our great event.

In 2022, we introduced our ‘5-year pin’ to thank our wonderful volunteers who have supported us for five or more years—and there are quite a few! We are also working on developing our Volunteer Gratitude Program.

For our 2023 event, we introduced Volunteer Team Leaders throughout, and at the end of 2023, we welcomed a select few incredibly generous individuals to form our inaugural Brisbane Open House Volunteer Committee. We will introduce you to them soon.

As a member of Open House Worldwide, our major free event weekend will always remain that, free. It is now permanently situated in min July each year.

Outside of this, we are building a calendar of events and immersive experiences throughout the year. These will all be ticketed and provide Brisbane Open House with crucial financial support. They will also provide our audience with continual programming throughout the year, our valued partners with further opportunities to reach our audience, and, of course, more opportunities for our volunteers to get involved!

So, if you are interested in signing up to learn more about how you can support us while having fun, meeting new people, and getting an immersive experience of Brisbane’s architecture, history, and culture, then fill out the form below.

We look forward to welcoming you as a valued member of the team!
