Arts Congress 2011: Monday, February 7th
The Arts Congress is coordinated by the Arizona Action for the Arts and is the official advocacy day for the arts here in Arizona. The event draws attendees from across the state representing large arts organizations, arts administrators, artists and community leaders. The event consists of training sessions, face-to-face meetings with state legislators, networking, caucuses, and representation in the House and Senate galleries. (If you don’t want to volunteer but would prefer to go as an attendee, click here to sign up.)
The Arts Congress is this Monday, February 7, 2011 at the State Capitol on the Senate Lawn and is is an all day event beginning at 7:30 am and ending at 3:30, but volunteers can sign up for 4 different shifts.
The Arts Congress organizers are looking for volunteers to work at the registration booth, volunteers to set up the coffee and muffin table and coordinate with the catering company for the lunch order, volunteers for the event check out, and volunteers to work as ambassadors. The ambassadors will be staged throughout the State Capitol and will be pointed out to the event attendees to answer questions, etc. The ambassadors are asked to work from 9 am to 3, but the organizers can be flexible. And if you can give a minimum of 3.5 hours, you’ll get lunch.
