Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Bower Center for the Arts!


Our volunteers are an integral part of our success.

By volunteering at Bower Center for the Arts, you are helping to make art more accessible to Bedford and its surrounding communities.

Our volunteers are exposed to ever-changing art exhibits and have the opportunity to make lasting friendships and network with the community.

We have a variety of possibilities available for our volunteers, some of which include:

  • Greeting Guests/Front Desk

  • Assisting instructors-artists

  • Helping to execute community events

  • Plan and install Exhibitions

  • Staffing concerts

  • Coordinating community art programs

We are flexible with schedules and mindful that every volunteer comes in with different expectations and gifts.

If you have a passion for art, a desire to help your community, are looking for an opportunity to develop leadership skills, or are just looking to get more involved, sign up to volunteer with us today! 

We would love to have you onboard.
