WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO VOLUNTEER AT FRINGEARTS?

When you volunteer at FringeArts you are not only a crucial member of the FringeArts team, but also a supporter of FringeArts artists and patrons. As a volunteer at FringeArts, you might be ushering a dance performance, collecting tokens for entrance to a circus act, directing patrons during a music event, or distributing programs at a play. The opportunities, like the art, are endless.

And who is the perfect FringeArts volunteer? Anyone who loves the arts ages 14 and up, the young and the young-at-heart alike. As long as you have a passion and interest in creating a positive experience for our artists and patrons, we would love to have you! If you are interested, all you need to do is reach out to our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@fringearts.com.

The following events are currently looking for volunteers:

First Person Arts Story Slam – January 14th; we are currently seeking volunteers for all roles, including checking in tickets at the door, handing out programs, directing patrons, tidying up the theater at the end of the show, and other small tasks as assigned by the house management team.

TEEN VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

FringeArts is proud to pilot a new Teen Volunteer program for the first High Pressure Fire Service festival, thanks to a partnership with the Philly STAMP Pass program and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. Our teen volunteers are ambitious, engaged young students from all over Philadelphia who care about art and art institutions. For each show in our High Pressure Fire Service festival, one weekend performance is designated as the Teen Volunteer show, in which high school students are the first faces our patrons meet, taking their tokens, ushering folks to their seats, and distributing programs. Teen volunteers arrive early for their shift for a pre-show discussion with a FringeArts staff member about the themes and questions of the show, and stay after for a post-show conversation facilitated by a Philly STAMP Teen Council member. The following are the Teen Volunteer shows for the 2019 HPFS festival:

If you are a high school student interested in participating in the Teen Volunteer program, please contact volunteer@fringearts.com. If you can’t volunteer at any of the above dates – never fear! Teen volunteers are always welcome at other volunteer opportunities.
