The Greater Derry Arts Council and the Derry Opera House
are operated solely by volunteers. You can view our mission and
Business Plan, but the executive summary is that we
promote affordable, family-oriented arts, culture and entertainment, primarily
at the Opera House in downtown Derry.
One key factor in maintaining affordability, in ticket
prices for patrons and in rental rates for production companies, is the
volunteer labor that makes it all work. Another key factor is fund
raising and donations, and there are certainly needs that have to be met
with money rather than with volunteer time. On balance, however,
volunteerism still plays a major role in keeping the arts alive in
If you have ever attended a performance, or if you
simply think that a thriving arts center in this area is important to
you and your family, please consider helping us. Many hands make
light work, and it is not possible to maintain the level of service that
the community has come to expect with just a few volunteers.
Please take a look at our list of
Committees. Can you envision yourself
assisting in one of these areas, with whatever level of time commitment
you have available? Visit our Events page
to find a standing schedule of committee meeting dates.
