Encore is our guest artist program. We seek poets, painters, performers, and players who will share their talent with residents and engage them with creative projects or offer the pleasure of good performance.

Encore volunteers are people who:

  • play an instrument
  • write and read short stories, essays or poetry
  • juggle or perform magic tricks
  • craft
  • create portraits, still lifes or landscapes
  • dabble in culinary arts
  • sing
  • enjoy rehearsing in front of a live audience
  • dance

Apply to become an Encore volunteer and we’ll contact you to schedule a performance, exhibit, workshop, appearance or program on a day and time and at a place that is convenient for you!
