Volunteers are always needed to help run our festival, mostly as secretaries and hall monitors. If you would consider assisting Contemporary Showcase Edmonton, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@csedmonton.com.

Teachers are welcome to be secretaries during their students’ performances with the understanding they will not indicate to the clinician any connection with the student. We thank you in advance for your assistance!!
