Volunteer for 100 Performances!

Ring in the New Year with 100 Performances for the Hole on Saturday, January 4th! Start 2014 with karma in the bank by volunteering to help at this huge performance extravaganza! We really are calling all volunteers!

Email volunteer@somarts.org or call 415-863-1414, x111 for more information or to sign up. Thank you for helping us present this one-night-only mini-marathon of artistic moments.

The first of the 100 Performances begins at exactly 5:58pm, and continues on, one performance after the other, until midnight. Volunteers can work the entire evening or for a four-hour shift.

We will need:

Ticket takers work with SOMArts’ box office team to check in attendees and collect ticket stubs.

ID checkers confirm that an attendee is over 21 and will distribute wristbands.

Artist & VIP checkers check in VIP’s and artists and issue wristbands. They will oversee the collection of artist media release forms.

Bartenders and Bar backs serve beer, wine and a simple cocktail. Bartenders will tally sales on a provided form. Bar backs will keep supplies of ice, cups and beverages replenished and assist the bartenders.

Exit monitors ensure that no one enters through the back gate and without a wristband and will offer a hand stamp to those who would like to leave and return.

Stagehands and Hole Monitors must be able to lift 20 pounds above their heads and be able to get in and out of the hole multiple times. Good energy and stamina are essential for this stage manager-like position. We are especially looking for volunteers that have worked with us before, but will work with a new volunteer who has energy and passion.  Managers assisting at the stage/hole will be the first person to help artists set up, get in, get out and clean up. Stage/hole managers must wear all black and will be provided with a black SOMArts t-shirt.

Street Team volunteers will distribute posters to cafes and businesses in San Francisco. This volunteer opportunity must be done before January 4 and can be done at the volunteer’s discretion. A car, bike or scooter helps, but this can be done using public transportation, too.
