Volunteering with SOS

If you are looking to get more involved with SOS, volunteering can be a fantastic avenue. Not only does it help you meet and network with other artists in Somerville, but it also does things like gain you entry to our volunteer show (happening at the Diesel Cafe this year!) and it helps to keep Somerville Open Studios affordable. Every part of SOS is volunteer run. From show coordinating to filling map stands, volunteers keep SOS moving forward!

Currently we are looking for volunteers to fill the following roles. If you are interested in taking on any of these jobs, email coordinator Ellie Laramee-Byers.

  • Volunteer Coordinator: if you have a knack for pairing and recruiting volunteers for different positions, this job is for you! VC would work closely with the event and assistant coordinators.
  • Sponsorship: Are you outgoing? Do you like connecting with businesses and helping to keep SOS affordable and accessible to artists? This position includes approaching local businesses and helping to find sponsors for ads in our mapbook.
  • Volunteer Show Coordinator: If you are interested in helping to coordinate a show for Somerville Open Studios, our volunteer show may be an awesome place for you to start!
