A volunteer appreciation with a twist!
Celebrate National Volunteer Week by joining Community Volunteer Connections, Arts Council of New Westminster and Arts Services in a provocative presentation and round table discussion celebrating the volunteer contributions of artists in non-profits and arts organizations.
Our presenters will share their unique experiences related to how and when they share their talent as volunteers.
This event is a part of VIBE, New Westminster's premier art event. The Anvil Centre will be alive with art, activities, gallery tours, a photo booth and local brews. Register your team and bring your volunteers to a truly unique volunteer appreciation event!
This event is free to attend however we do appreciate donations to help us cover our costs.
