Get Involved

The Cabarrus Arts Council wants the community to be involved in our programs! Make new friends and learn more about the inner workings of an arts organization by becoming an arts council volunteer. We consider our volunteers essential members of the arts council team and we are always pleased to see new faces.

Docents at the Galleries

Volunteer docents engage visitors in interactive experiences that give them a new appreciation of the visual arts. We rely on our docents to create a memorable and enlightening experience for visitors of all ages. Our docents attend an orientation to each exhibition to learn about the artists and their work. Docents are required to volunteer for a minimum of three hours per month, greeting visitors, answering questions about the exhibitions and building, and helping with special events.

Ushers at the Davis Theatre

The Davis Theatre presents performances and events that depend on volunteer ushers to make patrons feel welcome, safe and comfortable. Ushers may be assigned to take tickets and escort guests to their seats, to assist the box office manager, to help with concessions or merchandise sales or to ensure that the performers’ needs are met. Ushers complete a general training class and arrive early for each performance to receive instructions specific to that event.

School Programs

Students Take Part in the Arts

Over 30,000 students and teachers see professional cultural arts performances through this arts council program. Volunteer ushers help ensure children’s safety as they get off buses, arrive and leave performances. They also help children and teachers get seated quickly and efficiently. These volunteers have the pleasure of seeing wonderful professional performances and the delightful responses of our young audiences.

Art on Tap offers an environment where young adults can connect with each other and participate in the arts council’s events. It also gives its members an outlet to make a positive impact on the community. The membership benefits include invitations to exclusive events, a 10% discount in the Galleries Shop, opportunities to volunteer and get involved at the Cabarrus Arts Council, participation in the Annual Group Project, and the chance to assist with the artist selection for the next season in the Davis Theatre.

Art on Tap membership is renewable one year from date of purchase. Membership provides partial funding for four annual Art on Tap events. The members select an annual project. In 2014-15 cult classic films were selected to bring to the Davis Theatre the following season. This year members will enjoy the movies with friends and help the arts council with its premiere season of Family Days. We hope you will join this great group and invite your friends to join as well. Art on Tap is a fun way to get together with friends and to make a positive impact on our community.

We want to hear from you! If you have any questions about membership benefits or the Cabarrus Arts Council, please call 704.920.2787.
