Current Volunteer Opportunities
Art Avenue - Mail Out Team
1241 Cartwright Street, Vancouver, BC, V6H 4B7
The Federation of Canadian Artist's publication 'Art Avenue' is popular across the world! Mailing out is a huge task, but has also become something of a team sport for volunteers at the FCA! In this role you'll be working as a team to label and fill envelopes with copies of Art Avenue, while chatting with the team and enjoying light refreshments at our gallery location on Granville Island.
The next mail out is scheduled for May 2016.
1241 Cartwright Street, Vancouver, BC,V6H 4B7
During the week we look for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to greet visitors and person the reception desk at our gallery location on Granville Island. Potential volunteers should have strong computer skills, a love of art and the desire to meet and mingle with those who come into the gallery.
Shifts run from 10 AM - 1 PM and 1 - PM - 4 PM
Tuesday - Friday.
