Arts Commons Celebrates National Volunteer Week
CALGARY – Arts Commons and Volunteer Canada are proud to celebrate the vital efforts and contribution of volunteers during National Volunteer Week – April 23 – 29, 2017.
Involved Canadians build strong and connected communities to create a vibrant Canada and this is even truer in the arts where volunteers support the ability of Calgary’s cultural organizations to put on amazing productions, workshops, and events. Arts Commons is recognizing these outstanding individuals by making 200 tickets available for active volunteers and their invited guest to attend our upcoming concert of Miles Electric Band on April 27, 2017 in the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
“I am astounded on a daily basis with the power and passion of Calgary’s volunteers. We are lucky in the arts to have individuals who do so much to help us share the love for cultural vibrancy in our community,” says Johann Zietsman, President and CEO of Arts Commons.
The volunteer programs at Arts Commons include activities with the Marketing & Communications and Development teams, as well as filling the Concierge role that welcomes our patrons and helps them navigate the multi-venue building.
