The Gallery has an incredible team of forty Volunteer Guides – and we want more! We’re currently seeking expressions of interest for ten enthusiastic individuals to join us.
Anna Worthington is a Small Business TOGETHER Partner of the Gallery Foundation. She is the creator, baker and maker of Cakes by Anna. After completing her BFA at Elam School of Fine Arts and spending time abroad, she returned to Christchurch and fell into the wonderful world of cake. Outside the kitchen, Anna enjoys gardening, drawing and eating.

The process normally feels like a long, slow marathon with a sprint at the final corner. So here’s a guide to how you too can get the NZI Foyer gig-ready in five (or six) easy steps.
