Adult Volunteers

Volunteer Installing All Together Exhibition 01 2018

Get involved with your local arts community!

We are looking for active and creative adults (19+ years) to volunteer at our events and programs throughout the year, from gallery installations and receptions, to festivals and more!

Exhibition Installation and Take Down:  Help the Arts Centre set up and take down it's gallery exhibitions! Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what it takes to put an exhibition together. Volunteers assist the Gallery Manager with setting up and taking down the exhibition approximately every six to eight weeks according to the schedule, which is available upon request. Gallery installation and strike usually take place between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM on weekdays. You must be able to lift at least 40lbs. Volunteers can expect to fill holes, sand, paint, measure, and use small power tools. Training can be provided if no prior experience in gallery installations.

Community Events Volunteer: Our community events volunteers participate in two different types of activities: Gallery Receptions and neighbourhood events.

Gallery Receptions are fun and exciting evenings where the public comes to view the new exhibits for the first time, often in the presence of the exhibiting artists. Those scheduled for Gallery Receptions can expect to greet visitors at the door, plate and set out food and beverages, and tend to the bar. Those assisting with food plating will require Food Safe, and those tending the bar will require Serving It Right.

The Arts Centre is also involved in neighborhood events throughout the community. These events (for instance, Car-Free Day, the Port Moody Shuffle, and Culture Days, among others) are occasionally craft-based, but generally involve conversational outreach and information distribution, such as brochures.

Brochure Distribution:   Brochure Distribution Volunteers help to promote and educate citizens about the Arts Centre, by placing brochures, rack cards, and bookmarks, in public libraries, recreation centers, and various public spaces.. Hours are flexible.
