Become a Volunteer
The Hygienic relies upon the generous support of individuals in our community, for help in staffing the galleries, in working on projects such as renovations and gardening, for special event staffing and for fundraising. Without the efforts of our volunteers, Hygienic would not exist. Volunteerism and activism are at the core of what we stand for and what we believe in. The Hygienic is not only about art. It is truly about building a supportive community of individuals who come together for a common cause, who know that art belongs at the heart of our city and that all people deserve a voice.
There is a wide range of volunteer opportunities for interested individuals. Please feel free to stop by the galleries anytime at 79 Bank Street in New London, Connecticut and introduce yourself!
