The Nanaimo Arts Council is always happy to welcome new volunteers. Following are upcoming opportunities. If none are available, please check back for new postings.



Ekphrastic Celebration – Program Coordinator

This is an awards program in which NAC invites poets to write a poem about a piece of art in one of our online galleries. The coordinator’s responsibilities include promoting the event with the assistance of our Communications Coordinator, liaising with visual artists and poets (usually about 18-20 poets), and assisting with the online awards ceremony. The call for poems occurs in March/April, with the ceremony 12 weeks later. This volunteer position has a $500 honorarium.  To apply, send a brief bio and a statement of interest to nacfrontdesk@gmail.com.  VIU art students are welcome to apply.
