Why Volunteer?

We all like to spend time doing what we're passionate about.  For supporters of the not only the arts, but of what could be better than volunteering in a way that impacts what you enjoy?  Whether you love meeting new people, or just like knowing you made a difference, we have something for everyone.

Our volunteers are students and teachers from high schools and colleges, boy/girl scouts, church groups, military personnel, families, business groups and individuals who answered the volunteer call.  Everybody age 16 years and older is welcome (and needed) to participate in this most exciting event! Please note: if you are under 16 years old you may still participate, but you will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Ushers for the Arts

Want to volunteer and take in world-class shows?  Usher for the Arts volunteers at the Crown Coliseum Complex can earn money for the Arts Council. After your duties are completed, volunteers can stay to see the rest of the show or event. Must be an adult age 21 or older. Please contact Suzanne Skene at usher4thearts@theartscouncil.com.

International Folk Festival

IFF volunteers keep this parade floating!  From set-up to break down, behind the scenes and on stage, volunteers are needed throughout the festival planning and the event itself.

A Dickens Holiday

A Dickens Holiday needs approximately one hundred volunteers to do a range of activities from set up/break down to assisting in distributing 5,000 candles.

Fourth Fridays

We like to think of the Arts Council as the "community's living room" and each Fourth Friday (January-October) our volunteers help us welcome everyone who comes through our red doors!

Micro Volunteers

Are you on social media? Great! Spread the word about the creative happenings of our community by becoming a Micro-Volunteer.  Simply like us (the Arts Council) and share posts on social media. Three minutes can make a big difference.   For more information contact calendar@theartscouncil.com.

Special Events

One time events for specific exhibitions, workshops and other outreach opportunities benefit by having extra sets of hands and welcoming smiling faces.
