Volunteer Opportunities! We are looking for creative and energetic people of all ages to volunteer at our events throughout the year, from gallery displays and receptions, to festivals, birthday parties and other special events. Volunteering is an excellent way to meet people and contribute to the heart of the Port Moody arts community. Our volunteers get to go ‘behind the scenes’ at our major events. If you are interested in becoming part of our volunteer team, please drop by the Arts Centre or complete the volunteer application form on our website at pomoarts.ca.

Volunteer Appreciation Did a volunteer go above and beyond for you? Let us know so that we can recognize them at our annual volunteer appreciation event. Email volunteer@pomoarts.ca.

The Blackberry Gift Shop is operated and run by the Blackberry Artist’s Society, so a visit during shop hours means that you can talk to one of the artists in person. All work is locally created, unique and fresh out of the studio. Opening hours: Monday to Sunday 12noon to 4pm
