Volunteer

Our mission is to enrich the quality of life in Livingston County by encouraging and promoting arts and cultural activities through support of artists, schools, and community groups. With diminished state funding over the last five years, our staff relies more and more on the generosity of volunteers¬† to help accomplish this mission. Many hands make light work… And of course, we try to have some fun along the way, so join us!

We welcome interns and offer projects in a variety of specializations. For the summer 2013 semester, we are accepting applications for a Marketing Assistant, Grants Assistant, and Arts Underground Studio intern. Please click here for more information.

Volunteers are needed for the following purposes:
