Volunteers' Stories

We’re proud of all the people who volunteer their time and talent to the arts in Toronto.

Here are some of their stories....

Why People Love to Volunteer in the Arts

Toronto’s arts organizations are fuelled by the energy of new interns and volunteers. Volunteers get the chance to work with the arts professionals making the shows happen, being part of the behind-the-scenes organization and planning that the audience never sees. Volunteers often get the chance to see shows for free and get to know professional artists they may not otherwise meet. Arts volunteers gain valuable experience in a wide variety of areas, building their resume and increasing their references that will open doors to work opportunities down the road. Arts volunteers meet other volunteers and professionals who - like themselves - love dance, music, visual art, film, and literature. Most of all, people volunteer in the arts to be part of the action in Toronto's bustling arts scene.
