Business Volunteers for the Arts is a matching service which connects volunteers from the private sector with local arts organizations and individual artists.
Volunteers offer pro bono time and services to help artists work through roadblocks and develop sound business practices. Our goal is to give artists the support they need to make their best work, and to strengthen creative networks throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. In 2018, we matched arts members with $18,800 worth of pro bono support from the private sector through this program.
Volunteers offer 1-5 hours per month and are always welcome to decline when we reach out if it’s not a good time and/or a good fit. Once a volunteer’s maximum hours/month have been reached, we will not reach out again until the year is up.
