Call for Volunteers: Lend a Hand at Our Biggest Fundraiser of the Year

At Calgary Queer Arts Society, we rely heavily on the generous support of our community volunteers, who donate their time, energy, skills and resources to help strengthen our programs. Our volunteers are actively involved in ensuring that we fulfill on our vision, as we work towards a world where diverse queer stories are integrated, celebrated, and expected in our communities and institutions.

Our small but mighty team is SO grateful for those who continue to volunteer with us, year after year. Because of you, we’re able to humanize social justice issues through a queer lens and provide opportunities for learning, community, and celebration in Calgary and Alberta.

Why Volunteer at Calgary Queer Arts Society?

  • Meet new people and make new friends
  • Build your network of support within the LGBTQ2+ community
  • Connect with like-minded individuals
  • Explore new challenges and learn new skills
  • Give back to the community
  • Complement your current studies or employment
  • Have a lot of FUN

Whatever your reason, we’d LOVE for you to join us, and we’ll be there to train and support you along the way!
