Volunteers of Kaunas Artists’ House (KMN) are an important part of the institution. Volunteering encourages residents and guests of the city to contribute to the development of this open and inclusive space – Kaunas Artists’ House – as well as the promotion of culture and community building. By engaging in volunteering, we create the environment in which we want to grow together and collectively ensure a more sustainable development of the city. KMN volunteers are our ambassadors, who can turn every visit into a special experience for our guests.
Who can become a volunteer at KMN?
Volunteering is open to persons of any age, gender, religion or political conviction, who want to broaden their horizons in the cultural and artistic field and, of course, contribute to the creation of a better and more socially responsible society.
Why become a volunteer at KMN?
Volunteers’ activities are primarily based on the values of generosity, mutual understanding, cooperation, openness and respect. We strive for a friendly approach to each other’s suggestions and ideas, so we see volunteering as informal learning that plays an important role in developing a diverse personality.
Volunteering at KMN also provides an opportunity to get acquainted with various artists and cultural workers, acquire new acquaintances and friends, and gain valuable experience.
