2018 Art in the Open Free Event (Volunteers Needed)
May 18, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until May 20, 2018
AiO is currently recruiting volunteers from any environmental or art organizations in Philadelphia (any organization/business is welcomed to join). This event will take place on our Schuylkill River so we hope to bring our city together to participate. In 2016, we had 54 volunteers help us in our three day event and we’re working to recruit even more this year! If you know any volunteers or staff from your organization who could be interested in signing up, please forward this email to them.
Here are the volunteer opportunities with Art in the Open:
Visitor Services: Requires walking/moving about the AiO event path to greet and talk with attendees and passerby’s. Introduce them to artists, give directions, provide maps, etc.
Artist Support: Would assist to 1-3 event artists and providing support such as exhibit construction/deconstruction, prepping/delivering items, offering them a break while you watch their station, etc.
Event Photographer/Video Documentation: Use your own digital camera to photograph artists at work, festival visitors and partner events. Files must be shared and experience is necessary.
Family Activity Support: Assist with family-oriented exhibitor activities. Must love engaging with young kids and families. Will assist participating organizations, engage with families/attendees, answer questions, etc.
