YOU are Needed! We are seeking to energize the Arts in Watauga County. In order to do so, we need to have a strong body of people who are committed to this mission! Here are a few areas where we could use some help:
General Help: If you are interested in helping with any of our initiatives but just don’t want to commit to a specific committee yet - we need warm bodies to help execute some of our plans. General help might include - helping around the office, teacher assistance, gallery/retail sitting, representing us at a booth for Art in the Park or the farmers market, etc.
Volunteer Organizer: We could really use help managing volunteers. If you have strong administrative skills and like working with schedules and communication, this would be a great way for your to contribute.
40-year anniversary helper: Help us filter through some of our file boxes, photos, and more and find constructive ways to showcase our rich history.
Donor Management, Fundraising Support, grant writing: We need help jump-starting our donor program. Preferably someone who has worked in nonprofits and understands how to tap into diverse revenue sources. We also need fundraising-minded people to join us with out-of-the-box thinking to help us raise capital in order to sustain our organization moving forward. This has been severely overlooked throughout the past 10 years and we need to get back on track in order to survive!
Communications Leader: We could really use someone who is skilled in marketing and communications to join our team and assist our director in communication efforts. We have a lot of initiatives we want to push, it can often be too much for the Director to try to facilitate on her own, someone with this experience would be greatly appreciated! Interns would help do the busy-work, you would help facilitate, strategize and connect dots.
Administrative Support: We could use someone who works well in an office setting who can help with filing, thank you letters, sending emails, donor management software etc.
King Street Art Collective Leader: This person will be our lead point person for the King Street Art Collective. They will help facilitate the work of the gallery and programming committees for this space. They will help organize/lead committee meetings to ensure our schedule is understood and being implemented. This volunteer will have the help of a dedicated intern and other volunteers.
Gallery Committee: We need a gallery chairperson to lead the committee. We would also love to build a strong team of gallery volunteers. Some of our previous volunteers have done it for many years and are ready to slow down. These volunteers will help facilitate gallery exhibitions at KSAC and other community galleries. Communicating with the artists, creating labels and artist statements for the exhibits, transporting and hanging shows according to set deadlines. This group will work with the communications committee to ensure detailed information and promotion about shows are being released.
Programming: We are building our team of programming-minded people. If you have great ideas for events, art classes, workshops, or community programming - we want to hear from you. We are seeking people who to help strategize and implement arts enrichment in the community. Outside the box thinkers welcome. Detail-oriented people- yes, please!
