Description

Love the arts-want to support a respected local charity-volunteer at Aberdeen Arts Centre!

Aberdeen Arts Centre is recognised nationally as an inclusive community hub which hosts arts activities across a wide demographic. With our ethos of “everyone is entitled to an enriching cultural life, regardless of age or social circumstance”, we are a truly intergenerational organisation, with performing arts tuition at the heart of what we do. More than 100,000 individuals pass through our doors each year, with over 40 professional, amateur and youth companies who rely on us.

Our backbone is our strong, dedicated volunteer base and we have a range of volunteer opportunities that people can get involved in including café volunteers, bar volunteers, front of house assistants, box office and reception support.

All volunteers are greatly appreciated and provided with good support.
