We need your help!
We are looking for co-chairs for the 2014 Celebration of the Arts!
The co-chairs provide overall leadership of the annual spring Celebration of the Arts, a two-week event that includes the Arts Festival, Lewisburg Live!, exhibits, and workshops. They are the people who are the primary contact for other volunteers and the community. The position requires knowing a little about each component of the Celebration, and having a lot of enthusiasm for making thousands of people happy every spring!
The amount of time is variable, depending on time of year, with the peak time in March. Planning begins in October, and wrap-up happens in May. If there are enough volunteers to chair all the subcommittees, the co-chair time should not be more than a few hours a week (maybe more in March). If either co-chair works on or leads any of the subcommittees, the time commitment will be higher.
Coordinate subcommittees, making sure each person or team is doing tasks on time, and that all pieces work together smoothly. Also involves finding people to lead each subcommittee.
- Featured artist liaison
- Publicity, including booklet
- Festival artists
- Festival food
- Entertainment (Festival and Live!)
- Exhibits (Indoor Art, Photography, and Featured Artist)
- Interactive Arts Park

Additional non-subcommittee tasks:

- Be the primary contact person with the booklet designer – make sure all information is included and accurate
- Meet with borough, police, and fire in the spring
Digital records and spreadsheets from previous years, including subcommittee tasks by calendar, are available to be passed to the co-chairs or any other volunteers who work with the Celebration. Much of the work is the same from year to year, so the files are very helpful!
