Events help

While these are our primary needs, other volunteer opportunities come up from time to time. If you have a special skill or expertise, don’t hesitate to let us know!

Engagement Committees

If you have a passion for community-building around the arts, we invite you to join one of our Engagement Committees – we want your ideas and your enthusiasm! Click here to apply to join any of our Engagement Committees.
