From an email I received from the Arts Council of New Orleans
Please Join Us!
All we need for a truly successful event is YOU! The Festival needs more than 100 volunteers throughout the weekend, and no previous experience is required. If you like being around talented people and perusing great art, please consider joining us in October.
What: The 6th Annual Fresh Art Festival, presented by the Arts Council of New Orleans – FREE and open to the public
When: Saturday, October 28th and Sunday, October 29th
Where: 700 block of St. Joseph Street between St. Charles and Carondelet
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The Festival features 60 juried-artists from 16 states; they will be showcasing and selling fine art and contemporary crafts. There is also on-going entertainment, lots of children’s activities, three artist demonstration areas, food, and beverages.
Attached are a Volunteer Form and a document that describes each volunteer category. Just tell us where you would enjoy helping, the time you have available, and email, mail, or fax the form back to us. We’ll get in touch with you approximately 1 week before the Festival to confirm your participation. And, as a small way of saying “thank you” for joining us, you will receive a commemorative Fresh Art Festival T-shirt when you check-in at the Volunteer Tent.
