Fun Volunteer Opportunity: Day of the Dead

Calling all volunteers! SOMArts Day of the Dead 2010 is just around the corner! This year’s festival is Honoring Revolution With Visions of Healing. We are looking for volunteers galore to help out in a variety of ways. Whatever your volunteer interests, we will be able to match you to a perfect volunteer opportunity. We need volunteers to serve as docents for our Day of the Dead school tour program and we need volunteers to help with hospitality during the opening and closing events.

Here is information about these volunteer opportunities. Please email us if you would like to sign up for any of these events or if you have questions.

Volunteers needed: Docents for Day of the Dead 2010

Fast-paced, fun and never boring! Enthusiastic volunteers needed to share the art and culture of Day of the Dead with students attending SOMArts 12th Annual Day of the Dead school tours. If you like working with students and enjoy sharing art projects and knowledge, this opportunity is for you. A training session will be scheduled before the tours begin. Email to sign up!

Volunteers needed: Event Assistants for Day of the Dead 2010 Events
When: Opening Celebration – Friday, October 8, Closing Celebration – Saturday, November 6, 6:00pm – 10:00pm
SOMArts is looking for several volunteers to help at our Day of the Dead Opening and Closing events. This is a hands-on job that will require helping with the box office, crowd control, and helping in the refreshments area. The opening and closing events for Day of the Dead are fun and exciting, featuring many live performances and chances to meet this year’s artists face to face. For more information, or to sign up to volunteer, email us.

We are very excited about the 2010 Day of the Dead opening celebration and the school tours. We think both of these events offer fun and important volunteer opportunities and we hope you think so, too. If you would like to sign up or would like to learn more, please email volunteer@somarts.org or call 415-863-1414, x111.

We look forward to working with you during Day of the Dead.
