Participate in Somerville Open Studios

SOS 2019 Organizational Meeting

SOS 2019 will hold its initial Organizational Meeting on Wednesday July 25, 6:30 to 8:30 at the Somerville Museum, One Westwood Road.

For SOS 2019, we're eliminating the single-person coordinator role in favor of a more organic model. Instead, we will foster individual groups of artists focusing specific tasks and goals. Periodic year-round meetings will the bring groups together and a timeline manager will keep us on track.

Become a Volunteer

The simplest way to volunteer, and one of the most helpful to SOS, is to adopt a map stand for the week leading up to our main event. There are map stands all over the city where map books are offered to passers-by. Those stands tend to empty quickly and need to be filled in the morning and evening. It's a simple task to do and helps so much. If you are interested in helping to accomplish this task, please get in touch with our Map Book Distribution Coordinator, Christina Tedesco at She can connect you with map stand locations and slots that are available for adoption.

Volunteering is an excellent way to be connected with the Somerville arts community. You can also get involved in behind-the-scene preparation for Open Studios in some of the following areas: Operations, Fundraising, Graphics, Public Relations, Web Content Management, Short Administrative Tasks, and Miscellaneous Labor and Light Construction, and more.
