Vacancies & Volunteering

Our volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. Without them, there wouldn’t be a thriving arts scene in villages around the region. Volunteers are not only responsible for promotions in their villages, but work directly with Highlights, acting as board members, inputting data and helping with publicity distribution.

If you are interested in having a more active involvement with the arts in your area, we’d love to hear from you.
