The final category for volunteering is for the Arts. I am sure there are areas I missed, but most could be included in the 5 I detailed this week, and this was meant to be an introduction to the different opportunities. Those that volunteer for Arts-related organizations mostly seek to keep the arts available to all people regardless of economic background but also just provide general support for the fine arts including art programs, museums, music, and theater.
Volunteers are active in fundraising and awareness for programs that keep arts, especially music, present in schools – helping buy pricey instruments and ensure budgets keep space and teachers for art-related classes in school.
They plan free events such as concerts in the park. They also do awareness, activism, and fundraising to help fund museums and conservatories to reduce or negate entrance fees so that more people can enjoy the works displayed or performed there.
Some of the best arts venues would not be able to operate without volunteers who usually are helping out for he experience to hopefully transition to paid work, but we still need to acknowledge what they do.
