The Cultural Information Center Seeks Cultural Concierges.
Become a Part of a Great Program AND Make a Contribution to the Arts & Cultural scene in Broward County.
The Broward County Cultural Division’s Cultural Information Center (CIC), is seeking recruits for its very rewarding Cultural Concierge program.
Cultural Concierges are citizens of the Broward community who dedicate their time and their hearts to educating the Broward population and its visitors on the cultural riches of the County. In 2007, more than 2,000 hours were donated by these committed local citizens, totaling more than $49,000 in value of volunteer service.
Located on the first floor of the Broward County Main Library, 100 S. Andrews Ave, Fort Lauderdale, in the heart of the arts and entertainment district in downtown Fort Lauderdale, the CIC offers visitors a stream of information about the current goings-on in Broward County including ticketing prices and availability, the latest exhibits, festivals, theater, musicals and any unique, diverse and/or international festivities that might be taking place. The CIC also offers cultural, signature merchandise from Broward County arts organizations that make excellent presents for friends and family, either at home or abroad. Cultural Concierges are the backbone of this nifty operation.
Since October 31, 2001, when the CIC opened, more than 75 percent of the concierges who started with the program still remain. This tightly knit group of cultural leaders share monthly field trips to become familiar with the many cultural facilities across Broward County, and sometimes even beyond. From boat rides, to back stage jaunts, Butterfly World, The Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum, Chihully at Fairchild Gardens, and the Norton Museum in Palm Beach, they travel together and learn first-hand about the products about which they are informing the public.
The CIC is open Tues-Thurs 11-6 and Fri 11-5. Volunteers needed for 2 shifts that start and end at 2:00 PM.
Responsibilities include providing visitors with information about local cultural events and organizations, along with giving directions and assisting in planning an itinerary of cultural activities.
The CIC is looking for volunteers that have an interest in the community and the arts. Some perks of volunteering are tickets to events and meeting others that have similar interests.
