The Volunteer Award for Arts and Culture in Toronto (VAACT)

TIFF is proud to be a contributing member of VAACT, a program to recognize volunteers who support multiple arts and culture events and festivals throughout the year in the City of Toronto. Awards are given to volunteers who complete the minimum requirements with at least four participating VAACT organizations throughout the year. VAACT culminates each year on International Volunteer Day, December 5, with an awards ceremony to acknowledge and thank our volunteers for their contributions making Toronto a more vibrant, cultural city.
