The Kamloops Arts Council relies heavily on its volunteers. From the 50 or more volunteers needed for Art in the Park – one of our annual events which sees more than 30,000 people through Riverside Park on Canada Day – to ongoing volunteers who work behind the scenes stuffing envelopes and making buttons, the KAC couldn’t do without them. 

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:

  • Through our programs, we’ll help even more artists launch their careers
  • And through our Crossing Bridges Arts Outreach program, support marginalized and at-risk groups
  • 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 volutneer for Kamloops Arts Council, you really can make a big difference.

What makes KAC volunteers so special?

We feel that there are a few qualities that make our volunteers really stand out from the crowd …

  • They’re friendly and approachable
  • Flexible and resourceful
  • They’re supportive
  • They act with honesty and integrity
  • And they’re reliable and accountable

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!
