An organization known as the Stand Firm Central Network organized a “Spring Fling” last week. I was able to attend the event, which was designed to connect potential volunteers with arts organizations.
I’ve been hoping to find some volunteer work to do with a theatre that will give me some valuable experience, so this event was perfect for me!
It was set up like speed dating: it took place in a bar, and each arts organization was seated at a different table. We, the potential volunteers, went from table to table to meet potential matches.
I learned about several different arts organizations that I didn’t even know existed (there were about ten different tables). I felt like it was a great way to meet people in the industry and practice my “elevator speech”/pitch.
I’ll be sure to keep you posted when I’ve found an arts organization that’s a perfect match!
