Volunteer

Gilmer Arts’ goal is to provide the highest quality programs, events, and instruction, and we are always striving to find ways to better serve the needs of our members, students and the community.  To reach these goals we need generous volunteer efforts from members like you!

There are so many exciting ways to be involved with Gilmer Arts—as an artist, performer, writer, office worker, usher, host or hostess, ticket seller, setup person, advertising solicitor, computer guru, handyman or woman, instructor, or camp assistant. The list goes on!  And whatever your interest—art, theatre, music, literature—there is something for everyone at Gilmer Arts!
