At Creative Regions we don’t just have volunteers… we have Ambassadors. Our Volunteer Ambassadors do more than a job: their enthusiasm and commitment for their community, for high quality arts experiences and for customer service enhances the delivery and outcomes of our projects.
Our Volunteer Ambassadors may be found at the ‘front line’ of events or working silently in the background of a project. The goal always the same – to see our local community thriving, strengthened and united through the development and implementation of a range of tailored and relevant arts and cultural opportunities.
Creative Regions’ Volunteer Ambassadors help us to support and promote the awareness of arts and cultural activities in the regions in which we work. They come from diverse backgrounds, and are varied in their passions, experience and skills.
Creative Regions recognises the valuable contribution Volunteer Ambassadors make to its services as our company:
- enables Volunteer Ambassadors to contribute to their community
- provides the opportunity for development of new skills and knowledge, information sharing and work experience’
- enhances the range of services available through Creative Regions
- encourages confidence building and job satisfaction for Volunteer Ambassadors;
- allows for wider community participation in the provision of arts and cultural activities within our local community.
Roles played by Creative Regions Volunteer Ambassadors are often project-specific and can range from backstage support, public art creation and installation, marketing and promotion, survey collection to an assistant to our professional artists.
Creative Regions is keen to tailor volunteer positions not just to the project, but to the Volunteer Ambassador’s needs and skills. If volunteering is ‘up your alley’ or you would like to give it a try, then please don’t be shy. There is bound to be an opportunity we can work on together.

“We have been involved with Creative Regions as volunteers for 5 years now working on the Crush Festival as volunteers and assisting with Kissing Swans exhibit in 2014. Working with Creative Regions has been for us a most fulfilling way to give something back to the Bundaberg community and at the same time be part of some very interesting events. We have learned a great deal about the artistic talent that exists in the Bundaberg region and look forward to being a part of the Festival again in future years.”
