Join the Hamilton Arts Council Volunteer Team!

Many volunteers have been involved with the Hamilton Arts Council in various roles and we are always seeking more helping hands to help us deliver more to our community! The Hamilton Arts Council works to advocate, mediate and communicate for the arts in Hamilton and, as one of our volunteers, you can help!


As a volunteer, you can let us know the days that work best for you or the capacity in which you want to work for us. We will let you know where we need the most help and create a schedule that will work best for you and the task at hand. 

The Hamilton Arts Council's Volunteer Program provides opportunities for members of the community to make personal contributions of time, energy, and skills to help our organization achieve its mission. The program is open to anyone interested in making a difference and offers a wide range of opportunities making use of a variety of skillsets.
