Sometimes it takes a village to raise village-wide event. We 2nd-floorers need all the help we can get to get this year’s festival off the ground. During the last three weekends in January, we’ll be collaborating with partner spaces around the city to host volunteer-ins.
What’s a volunteer-in? Think of it as a drop-in jam session for people with time, administrative skills, enthusiasm, and/or arts-and-craftsiness to spare. During each session, we’ll have a list of short(ish) tasks, complete with pointers and instructions, that just about anyone can complete. Tasks will vary, from posting fliers to sewing, folding, research, computery things, and more.
Each volunteer-in features sneak peek programming relevant to 2nd Floor Rear 2015, as well as refreshments, conversation, camaraderie, a chance to meet people involved with the festival, and deep gratitude. As an added bonus, we’re awarding an arty (or festival-related) prize to the person who completes the most tasks over the course of all three weekends.
