Craft Contemporary’s public programming offers a dynamic platform for adults, youth, and families to experience and make art. Program volunteers help support staff and visiting artists through a variety of tasks including set-up/clean-up, distributing materials, and program support at our monthly adult or youth-based craft workshops as well as other special artist talks, gallery discussions, and panel presentations.
Event volunteers are utilized to help support our Member Events, Exhibition Opening Receptions, and Special Exhibition Walkthroughs/Tours. Volunteer tasks include check-in support, wayfinding, event set-up/clean-up, bartending, monitoring attendees for safety and accessibility concerns, and supporting a warm, welcoming guest experience.
Senior Steward volunteers create a friendly, welcoming environment and assist the Visitor Services Coordinator in creating a unique and customized visitor experience for each person they engage. Available for folks 65+, duties include greeting visitors and providing them with information regarding exhibitions, programs, and events, directing visitors to amenities, and coordinating guest flow during busy times.
