Our volunteers are everything!

The Miller Beach Arts & Creative District is a non-for-profit organization that is very fortunate to have a beautiful facility and a supportive community. Lots of talent and dedication go into keeping this 95% volunteer organization running. Without your help, we would not be able to offer these exhibits and programming for the community. If you would like to get involved in one of these areas, just click the link in the box(es) of your choice, and the lead will contact you to find out more about your interest. Together we will make a difference!
