**VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION FOR THE 2022 IN THE SOIL ARTS FESTIVAL IS NOW CLOSED.** Sign up for our newsletter for upcoming volunteer opportunities.

Like many other not-for-profit organizations, we rely on a trusted core group of volunteers to present a rollicking season of events.

Interested in helping out with In the Soil Arts Festival? We’ll have safe, fun outdoor opportunities for you to get involved between June – August 2022.

Volunteers are the fertilizer of our festival. Each year the festival comes to life thanks to the loving support and hard work of dedicated volunteers. Although the last few years have looked a lot different, and our volunteer needs are not as vast, we continue to seek dedicated local folks to join a small and mighty team.

Volunteering provides an inside experience of In the Soil Arts Festival, sensitivity and anti-oppression training and opportunities to catch an eclectic program of original theatre, music, visual art, dance, media.

If you are interested in getting involved, sign up below! Volunteer opportunities are open to individuals ages 15 and older. High school volunteer hours are available.

We also offer volunteer training opportunities, not only for tasks at hand, but also concerning shared expectations among all team members to ensure safe, equitable and caring experience for all. We ask that all volunteers adhere to our Policy to Promote a Culture of Anti-Racism, Anti-Harassment and Equity
