The Guilford Performing Arts Festival is an all-volunteer organization, with a volunteer board of directors; volunteers who oversee program development, marketing, fundraising and production; and dozens of volunteers who welcome performers and audiences to every show and work hard to ensure their comfort and enjoyment.
Join us! We put smiles on the faces of thousands of people, place performers in the schools for workshops and master classes, showcase our area’s amazing talent and bring great national acts to the Connecticut Shoreline. And have a lot of fun doing it!
We have current needs in marketing, fundraising, partnership development and volunteer coordination. As the September 2019 festival gets closer, we’ll be looking for people to greet artists and audiences, work on staging, sound and lighting, coordinate logistics at multiple venues, and handle essential environmental duties as we put on the “greenest” festival we can.
To join the programming/production/environmental team or work on business/community partnerships, email Peter Hawes, head of programming.
To become a member of our fundraising/development team, email William Boughton, festival chairman & head of fundraising.
If you’d like to work on grants, email Donita Aruny, board secretary and grants administrator.
