Event Supporters

The QAC plans a number of events throughout the year and can use your help in a variety of ways.

QAC Gallery & Gift Shop Volunteers

The Gallery & Gift Shop requires volunteers to offer customer service, member information, sales support and inventory control.

Umbrella and Poster Distribution

If you like to travel and meet interesting people, you may enjoy helping to distribute the Umbrella arts newspaper (4 times a year) and event posters. You will need your own vehicle.

Belleville Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee

The Belleville Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee is looking for you! This is an ad hoc committee created by the QAC to facilitate, support and promote the artists in Belleville. Committee members will be able to:

  • participate in the Arts in the Community program
  • create artistic opportunities for themselves and other artists in the Belleville area
  • network with other artists in the Belleville area

Art in the Community Volunteers

Our Art in the Community (AITC) program needs people to assist in changing over the artwork at the QAC office/gallery and at the public locations in Belleville, every three months. The role of this committee is to: contact artist members to recruit for upcoming shows; contact venue owners to arrange for the art changeover; liaise with AITC Assistants and QAC staff to ensure artwork labels are prepared and placed with the artwork; and ensure that the pieces in each venue are recorded and entered into the database.

If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities, please email qac@quinteartscouncil.org or call 613-962-1232.
