Disability Art and Culture Project (DACP) seeks Planning/Production Committee members to plan its 2014 Sex, Love & Disability Fundraiser, and its 6th Disability Pride Art and Culture Festival!

Do you want experience planning arts events? Do you like working on a team? Are you good at working with volunteers, or are you a total social media maven? Are you the kind of person who has a flair for organizing details, or getting people to events? Are you passionate about building a vibrant arts community that celebrates the fullness of humanity? Do you want to experience social justice and radical inclusion in a nonprofit? Disability Art and Culture Project needs you on our planning/production committee!

Committee members meet monthly or as needed (eg. more often closer to the events) to plan a fundraiser in February 2014, and the Disability Pride Art and Culture Festival in May 2014. The commitment is to volunteer through June 2014. Committee members get to experience significant leadership and responsibility in making both events happen. There are several roles that committee members can volunteer to take on, or share. These include:

  • Accessibility Coordinator (duties might include scouting event locations, communicating accessibility features and areas of inaccessibility, fielding questions from the public, and serving as a point person for the audience on questions of disability access)
  • Volunteer Coordinator (duties include recruiting, welcoming, and supervising volunteers)
  • Fundraising Coordinator (duties include procuring donations from individuals and local businesses, and helping  other volunteers and committee members to do the same, as well as managing the financial logistics of running a silent auction)
  • Hospitality Coordinator (procuring food, beverage, and other items to serve at events, coordinating the pickup of donations, making sure our state licenses are in order)
  • Outreach/Marketing Coordinator (advertising both events using online tools, networking, postering, and traditional marketing strategies, and getting audiences to turn out for some great disability arts!)

If you’re a mover and shaker, if you love disability arts, dance, or social justice, or if you’re just looking for a meaningful way to use and develop your skills for a fabulous nonprofit organization, sign up for the committee today!
