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.
Volunteer spaces are limited and all volunteers are required to hold a Working with Vulnerable People registration; forms are available from Access Canberra. Please read our Volunteer Policy, fill out the application below and the Front of House Coordinator will be in touch if there are any roles available. Applications are kept for 12 months, however, if you have any further queries, please call on (02) 6173 3300.
