Have you ever volunteered for Watauga County Arts Council or Blue Ridge Art Space before?
Here are some specific volunteer needs we have right now. We have more but these are most-pressing. Please select if you would like to help with any of the following.
Communications Director/Support- We have a team of interns who help with social media, writing etc. We need someone who can help guide the students and help us create and implement an intentional communication strategy
Decorating/Stage Decor - we have a new art gallery downtown and the Blue Ridge ArtSpace. We need guidance on how to make these spaces functional, appealing and fun or engaging
Community Engagement Team Member or Leader: Outside of the Box thinkers mixed with logistics thinkers who want to find new and exciting ways to engage the community in the arts.
Website Redesign-Planning/Implementation: We need to switch to Squarespace and adopt a more sophisticated and clean website in order to grow. We are seeking grant money to make it possible to help pay for this but we need help planning this out and determining the best strategy before we apply.
Programs Coordinator/Support Volunteer - who can help us plan and manage classes, workshops, artist demonstrations, and more - We have two spaces - Blue Ridge ArtSpace and King Street Art Collective. We would love to start to implement more arts-in-action for the Art Collective and more classes at Blue Ridge ArtSpace - COVID brought this to a halt so we are rebuilding but hopefully expanding and improving our offerings.
Fundraiser Support: I need someone who can find creative ways to intertwine promotion of our sponsors as well as fundraising opportunties into our current programs while adding additional ones as well. We also need someone who is willing to help refine our sponsorships package and seek sponsorships from local businesses or beyond.
Treasurer: We need someone with a strong financial background who can serve as our treasurer and assist the organization with financial advice and guidance. Someone with nonprofit experience would be fabulous!
