Benefits of Volunteering with KAC

Volunteering with us can be a great way to gain experience, get involved in the arts community, meet people, and learn something new.

As a volunteer you can play a part in helping us to put the arts, in all its forms, at the heart of our community:

  • At ART in the PARK, we help more artists gain exposure
  • Our programs will bring our community together socially helping to build identity and pride
  • Making the Kamloops area even more attractive to residents, tourists, business and investors
  • And demonstrating the valuable role that the arts plays in building a healthy community.

As a volunteer for Kamloops Arts Council, you really can make a big difference.
