Interested In Helping Out The Swords In To Plowshares Peace Center & Gallery?

Our space has been maintained for over 30 years primarily through incredible and dedicated volunteers. If you enjoyed a recent show, or would like to help make our space even better, we encourage you sign up as a volunteer!


Volunteers help out with artwork intake, gallery cleaning, artwork hanging, hosting events, and so much more. They also have the chance to share input and reshape our center by joining our committees- helping select shows, run our gift shop, and crafting new events in our space!


This form is not a commitment to take on any one role, it's just a sign that you're interested in learning more and hearing about opportunities to get involved. We'll reach out with specific roles and tasks as they come up, and you can opt in or out at that time! To get started helping Swords Into Plowshares, click this link...
