Volunteers are an integral part of Council's arts and cultural venues and programs. 

As a part of the Cultural Services team, you will join a vibrant and social community of culture lovers.

Benefits of being a volunteer

Getting out and meeting new like-minded people and creating new friendships is just one of the great benefits of becoming a volunteer.

Working within our venues and services, volunteers will have access to the latest information on upcoming events, performances, exhibitions and activities of our arts, culture and heritage scene. 

Volunteers will develop new skills and make a positive contribution to arts, culture and heritage within our community.
