Volunteering

Our volunteers get involved with a whole range of projects and activities and without volunteers we would not be able to completely fulfill our mission to the public. Volunteers can be a museum’s most effective assets when it comes to marketing, fundraising and community support. For most museums, a strong, viable volunteer program is essential to its successful operation.

Everyday our collection is growing and these objects are what make your tattoo museum in Basel really special. Your talents, time and contributions can fulfill needs such as graphic design, website management, writing curriculum, translations, cataloging objects, multimedia, merchandising, constructing an exhibit, translations, external communications, handing out flyers, outside events, etc., etc…

Our entire collection also needs to be cared for and documented which includes labeling, database entry, photographing/scanning, cleaning/maintenance of displays and other museum equipment.

Every month there is something new planned at the STMB, lectures, educational seminars, workshops for tattoo artists, exhibition previews and parties. Volunteers can be helpful with these events before, during and after, everyone is welcome to get involved and support these activities. It`s your Tattoo Museum!

Employment

As we grow, more opportunities will arise for full and part time employment at the Swiss Tattoo Museum Basel. Volunteering now is your best chance to learn more about our Museum and help you discover our future employment opportunities. Our Museum assistants, curators, administrators, marketers, educators, experts and managers all share a passion for preserving Swiss & International Tattoo history both past & present.
