How It Works
Volunteering with the Community Art Hub is easy!
Volunteers primarily host our drop in hours at the Art Hub and support community members' use of the tools and equipment and collect payments for our drop in fee. Volunteers are allowed to use the art supplies on hand for free while volunteering. Volunteers will have the opportunity to help coordinate one art workshop of their choosing throughout the year, so if there is an art project you want to teach or a skill you want to learn, we will facilitate that. We will also be offering free educational resources to volunteers including Indigenous Inclusion practices, creating accessible spaces, and non-violent communication workshops to help boost our resumes and skill bases.1
Fill out our volunteer application form
Please fill out our Google Form to apply to express your interest in volunteering and to let us know about your volunteer availability.
As of January 17th: we have filled our schedule for weekly Drop In hosts. We are not taking a registry of interested volunteers to fill future drop in volunteer shifts, or to help out at Out There Fest in September 2024.2
Criminal Record Check
The next step is completing your criminal record check. To request your Criminal Record Check at no cost online, please email us at email@example.com
If you have completed a Criminal Record Check or another organization recently, you can request that it be forwarded to Alter Arts Society on the same website, which is faster than requesting a new one. It will say that the request is for volunteers.3
Once your criminal record check comes through, we can set up a time for you to do a building orientation with Josh, the Facilities Manager at the Quadra Village Community Centre (where the Art Hub is located).
After you complete the building orientation you will be given keys and a security code to the Quadra Community Center so that volunteers are able to host the space when the community center closes at 4pm on weekdays.
