The MacLaren Art Centre is seeking ambassadors to represent the Art Gallery at upcoming events in the community. 

An Ambassador will have the opportunity to engage with community members through their knowledge and experience in being a part of the MacLaren Art Centre.

If you are looking to try something new at the MacLaren, the ambassador program may be the thing for you. Ambassadors go out to community events and promote MacLaren programs and offer simple art projects to families who visit our tent. Shifts vary to make it more accommodating for you.

August is going to be a very busy time with community festivals, and there are a number of shifts as listed below for ambassadors to choose from.

If you are interested in volunteering for any of these shifts, e-mail Peter Bogle at peter@maclarenart.com with your name beside the one(s) you'd like.
