Help Support the Arts in Abbotsford!




Why volunteer?

Many people are unaware of what volunteering can do for you, so we made a helpful list that points out a few great reasons. We’ve got inspiring art, tonnes of events, a charming gallery and boutique, and dedicated volunteers.
We always need more though. Did you know, volunteers are the lifeblood of not-for-profit societies.

Our volunteers play a vital role in supporting local artists and engaging our community in the arts. Volunteering for
the Abbotsford Arts Council is a great way to meet new people, learn more about arts and culture, and support
your community.

Are you’re intrigued… right now we need

Gallery Attendants -  A Gallery Attendant is present during the open hours of the gallery to greet gallery patrons, keep track of levels of attendance, and monitor the gallery and boutique. 

No previous art or gallery experience is necessary; however, an interest in art would be helpful and a willingness to learn is essential. Attendants must be comfortable handling money, processing sales transactions and working in the gallery independently.
