We are always looking for volunteers and extra help! Let us know what you are interested in--there is something for everybody! (Also, talk about a resume builder! Holy guacamole! We should be charging you to have this much fun!) Please note that we are a day program, so our opportunities are mostly for people who are available sometime between 9:30-2:30 on weekdays.
Arts Instructors - Design basic lesson plans for a specific class (example: painting, oil pastels, dance technique, percussion) and lead that class twice monthly. Provide assistance in the studio working one-on-one with clients, go on or lead fieldtrips, help with mobility issues and studio safety, always with staff assistance. (Requirements: ability to teach at a relaxed pace, ability to explain things multiple ways, ability to think creatively and make adaptations as needed, ability to hear and understand feedback)
Arts Performers - We love hosting events! If you are a part of a dance group, acting troop, musical group/solo performer, would like to share your original writings, or present your art work, we would LOVE to have you! We will work out a day and time, and all you have to do is show up and do your thing! (Requirements: some awesome skills to share, enthusiasm, respectfulness)
Gallery Guide-We participate in the monthly Salt Lake Gallery Stroll! The third Friday of every month, we are open from 6-9pm to show off the best artwork we’ve produced in the last month! Although CCA Staff will always be at the event, we need additional assistance making sure that everyone that enters is greeted! Some visitors want to learn more about our program, talk about the artists, and buy artwork. Gallery Guides will assist in all of these areas! (Requirements: friendly, outgoing, and willing to brag on some awesome people; shifts will be 1-1.5 hours, depending on the number of volunteers)
Gallery Assistant - Hanging the monthly gallery can be quite the chore! Gallery Assistants will help tear down the previous gallery, clean the frames and walls, frame the new artwork, type title cards, and hang the show. This usually takes about 20 man hours--Gallery Assistants will commit to at least a 2 hour time frame. (Requirements: careful, detail oriented, and patient)
Blogger- We have a super cute blog! Updating it is always fun, and we would love to have more posts every week! You can blog about your volunteer experience, classes that you lead/sit in on, or personal connections with our artists! (Requirements: understanding of people first language, kind & respectful disposition, ability to understand and navigate the site)
Inventory Manager - We make A LOT of artwork! We need assistance photographing, cataloguing the digital images, and packaging the artwork to be taken home. Inventory Manager will also prep pieces in Photoshop to be made into prints, cards, and other products. (Requirements: familiarity with Photoshop, ability to use a camera, detail oriented)
Event Promoter - This person will be responsible for submitting our event information to various news, online, and other outlets. Design flyers, postcards, and assist with distribution of the promotion materials. Excellent experience for a graphic design student! (Requirements: experience with Photoshop, ability to hop around town if needed, and gumption)

TURN Dreams into Reality. We are dedicated to Choice, Quality, and Respect for people with disabilities and those who support them.
The goal of the TURN City Center for the Arts Program is to empower people with disabilities to express themselves in artistic ways, and to experience and learn art forms in which they have not participated in the past. As this program develops, we look forward to forging many partnerships with members of the arts community and students of the arts. Through collaborative classes, projects, performances, and exhibits, we hope to help the people we serve and the local community to interact in a mutually enriching way.
