Volunteers Needed

Arts Carleton Place offers a wide range of volunteer activities from leading a special project, supporting special events (like our spring or fall art shows), or organizing supplies and materials.

Anywhere from a single afternoon or evening to a month long commitment would be greatly appreciated. 
ACP offers an opportunity to give back to the community through a rewarding experience.

Assistance is also welcome in providing input to the strategic direction of the association. 

If interested, please complete our volunteer form.
