DO SOME TIME AT THE WORKHOUSE

CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS

Want to stay nimble? Meet new people? Participate in exciting arts-related events? Or just lend a hand, then the Workhouse needs you!

The Workhouse Arts Center relies on a strong team of dedicated volunteers to ensure our arts, education, history, and community programs run smoothly.  Volunteer opportunities change over time, but can include: events, gallery managers, museum docents, office and facility support, and more – specific duties will always vary based on time of year and what’s happening at the Workhouse.

Below are a few examples of the types of help needed at the Workhouse in our various departments. The list isn’t exhaustive, so if there’s something you’d like to help with but isn’t listed below, feel free to call us to discuss the possibilities.

If you want to support the arts with your time and talents, then the Workhouse is the place for you, please complete the Volunteer Application at the bottom of this page and we’ll be in touch!

If you have questions about volunteering at the Workhouse, please email our volunteer coordinator, Kristen Murray at KristenMurray@workhousearts.org.
