ARTFARM Seeking Volunteers

customLogoARTFARM is looking for a few volunteers to aid in the development stage of our Where Are We Now? project.
Where Are We Now? is a generative theater-based piece looking at issues of race, poverty, inequity and the human condition. The play will give voice to an ensemble of community members, primarily African American and Latino, who grew up locally in under-resourced circumstances. 
ARTFARM is accepting applications for volunteer internships in the spring 2016 semester to serve in various roles in the workshop phase of the project. We are seeking individuals to serve in the roles of Teaching Assistant and Stage Manager. We are seeking people with interests in theater, movement, voice, writing and and arts management. We are very interested in including the voices of the student interns in the development process of the piece.
We will simultaneously be crafting an arts-based program for the children of the ensemble.
In this capacity, we are seeking people with an interest in children, youth development and arts education.
The program will meet on 6 Sunday evenings in March, April and May, 2016.
ARTFARM is particularly seeking students of color with an interest in community engagment and conversations on race and equity.
There will be additional opportunities to engage in the production phase of ARTFARM’s Where Are We Now? project in the Fall 2016/Winter 2017 semesters.
ARTFARM is a non-profit whose mission is ‘cultivating high quality theater with a commitment to simple living, environmental sustainability and social justice.’
Interested parties should contact ARTFARM at or 860.346.4390.
