  • Volunteers

    Everything you experience at Artomatic is the work of dedicated volunteers. From building the performance platforms to coordinating with reporters, everything you see, and much of what you don’t see, is the work of people who get involved and dedicate time and effort.

    We couldn’t put on this huge event without you!

    If you have time to help us organize or a talent you’d like to share, let us know. We need people with a range of skills, including marketing, media, event planning and just plain organization.

    Find out more about volunteer opportunities.
