Volunteering at Belconnen Arts Centre is an opportunity to become a vital part of the Centre’s operations. You will play an active role in supporting and promoting the creative arts in our community. Volunteers will gain access and exposure to a wide range of artistic practices, gain new skills and share company with people who are also interested in and passionate about the arts. Since September 2009, volunteers have been supporting the Arts Centre by donating their time, skills and experience. This support has played an essential role in the Arts Centre achieving its vision of being an outstanding centre of arts and cultural activity in the ACT and beyond.
