Other Volunteer Opportunities

I recently received this email: “I wholeheartedly believe in the transformative power of community arts and would love to contribute to the work you are doing in whatever way needed.” If you feel the same way, please consider volunteering at CSA. It takes many hands to build a strong community art center. We depend on help for:

gallery sitting

data entry

hanging posters

assisting at opening receptions

marketing

graphic design

social media initiatives

handyman/woman tasks

moving things

special projects

event organizing

administrative tasks

grant writing

and more!

If you have a special skill or would like to volunteer in other ways, contact CSA at info@commonstreetarts.com.
