Share your passion for art and conservation with other like-minded people by joining the 2017 Artists for Conservation Festival volunteer team this fall in Vancouver!

Over 70 volunteers, filling 274 shifts joined us last year to run the festival on Grouse Mountain. This year's programming has been expanded, so we are seeking more enthusiastic volunteers to join our team.

Positions include usher, gallery ambassador, public greeter, artist supporter, youth field trip chaperone, special events assistant and many more to suit various skill levels and interests. Check out the festival schedule and come "Experience the Art of Conservation" with us!

It's a great way to get involved in the world's top international art and environmental festival! Meet passionate international wildlife/nature artists from around the world, share your passion with like-minded volunteers, and interact with festival visitors from ages 3 to 75+. 

Volunteers may be required to attend a pre-festival orientation/training session prior to the festival opening. Specific shifts and roles are filled at orientation meetings based on registration. All volunteers must sign up online and select positions of interest and availability for shifts. Volunteers are required to commit to a minimum of three shifts (6 hours duration each).
