Donate Your Time

We love our volunteers!

Donating your time and talent helps us build a creative, inclusive community where we can all enjoy art and strive for change.


Why volunteer?

Volunteering at the Idea Store is a great way to meet and work with some of the area’s most creative artists, educators, and innovators! Got a niche, like sewing, knitting, collecting ephemera, or woodworking? Whatever your creative passion, weave it into your volunteer work. Volunteer as much or as little as you’d like.
