Volunteer FAQ

Want to get involved?  Here’s how!

First, subscribe to the Artomatic Newsletter – this is the first place we will put out calls for volunteers.

Same goes for Facebook and Twitter! If you’re connected with us, you’ll be in the right place when we need your help or participation!

Putting on a big Artomatic event requires the help of hundreds of dedicated volunteers. We are organized into teams with different areas of responsibility. All participant artists, and really, anyone who wants to can join one of these teams and help us put on a great event.

In between the large events, we’re building out our infrastructure of long term volunteers in the following areas. These teams are also responsible for ramping up when an event is in planning.

Marketing Team

The Artomatic Marketing Team develops, coordinates, and implements branding, marketing and promotion of Artomatic. The Team works to ensure that relationships with participants, the community, and funding supporters are optimized. Artomatic Marketing Team responsibilities include Artomatic’s social media marketing, public relations and advertising.

The marketing team is currently looking for marketing-specific expertise, particularly in PR and content marketing. Interested in knowing more? Fill out this form and we’ll be in touch.

Site and Operations Management (Site Ops)

The Site and Operations Management Team (Site Ops) plans, oversees, and executes site and event operations. The Site Ops Team allocates and manages space and physical assets for Artomatic Teams and participating artists. The Site Ops Team also builds on the resources required to sustain operations during and between events.

Performing Arts Team (PA)

The Arts Programs & Resources Team (APR) is responsible for educational programs (for artists and non-artists, adults and children), resources for artists, and special events and exhibits during Artomatic. The Team members collaborate with the EPM, SVM, and PA Teams as well as with outside organizations to schedule, market, plan, prepare, manage, and follow up on all programs, events, and special exhibits.
