Junction Arts Festival Weavers Wanted!


Festival Weavers Wanted!

The theme of the 2009 Junction Arts Festival is ‘Weaving Mosaics’ and we are looking for a creative and dedicated team of volunteers to help bring together all the magical elements of this year’s event into one seamless art extravaganza. Each volunteer brings a special gift to weave into the fabric of the festival and be sure your piece will be seen and heard by all that come to experience the excitement and magic of the street. It is our aim to make these experiences as enjoyable, memorable, and fulfilling as possible, and we cannot do this without the help of our brilliant volunteers.

We are also looking for charismatic members to lead and usher our exciting “green team” as part of this year’s Green Village at the festival. Join us as we answer the call and endeavor to make this a greener and more environmentally friendly festival than any we’ve had before.
