Volunteering with Ae

Altered Esthetics (Ae) is a nonprofit community organization run by artists, for artists. Our mission is to foster an inclusive and sustainable arts community through exhibitions, education, and outreach. Ae is run by a volunteer-driven board who donate their time to create workshops, exhibitions, and events for emerging artists.

Board members are chosen to lead a specific area of Ae, but will be involved with all aspects of the organization. They are expected to work as a team to support and contribute to all Ae activities, events, and projects. Our board members have many skills and regularly offer assistance and expertise to fellow board members.

Altered Esthetics' need for new volunteers and board members varies depending on our events calendar and ongoing board terms. For notifications on new opportunities, please subscribe to our monthly newsletter below.
