Volunteer Opportunities

Do you want to get more involved at the Arts Council? Our volunteers make it possible for us to put on the great exhibits and shows we are known for! There are many ways to become involved with the Arts Council. Help install a gallery exhibition or work the house during one of our many performances. Each year dozens upon dozens of people from Wilson help to make each event a reality.
