Volunteers Needed: Dumbo Arts Festival

Depending on the job you are assigned (see below), this sort of volunteering can be a great way to get useful experience for your resume and/or make contacts for paid employment – Jenn Ball

The Dumbo Arts Festival is a feast for the senses that attracts 200,000
visitors over 3 days with the participation of over 500 artists from a
variety of disciplines, 100 studios, 50 galleries and stages and 100
programming partners. This year, the Festival will take place on Friday,
September 23rd, Saturday, September 24th and Sunday, September 25th.

We are reaching out in hopes that you will join the 2011 Dumbo Arts Festival
Volunteer Team!

This year we are searching for volunteers who can devote some of their time
between Friday, September 16th and Thursday, September 22nd, as well as, the
three days of the Festival itself.

The activities you might engage in include assisting exhibiting artists with
installation of their works, guiding attendees through and between the
various exhibits, lending a hand at one of our performance stages, or
helping the next generation of artists at our children’s creation station.

We are also looking for a number of volunteers to start early on in
September, to work on specific projects.

This is an amazing opportunity to get involved with one of the biggest and
most cutting-edge art festivals in New York City.
