Artistic Volunteers

Do you like to paint or draw? We are looking for a few volunteers to paint some window shutters for the Us at Home structure. Now, this is not a boring and mundane activity of painting window shutters a nice neutral colour for a regular house…No! This is a 25th Street Theatre house. We want colour! We want shapes! We want you to show us your creativity! The more colour, the better! We want people walking or driving by to see these window shutters and get excited and inspired. If you would like to show your creative side, this opportunity might be for you!  

*Also! We are looking for someone who would like to use their artistic ability to paint the door of this structure! (Must be comfortable with lettering).

Shift Time: Up to two weeks before festival, no scheduled times.

Safety is our top Priority!

25th Street Theatre takes the safety of its volunteers, artists, patrons, and staff very seriously. All Volunteers must adhere to Saskatoon Health and Safety Guidelines as well as any additional health and safety policies 25th Street Theatre may implement. Volunteers should be able to be a safety ambassador and be confident enough to ensure others follow the health and safety guidelines. We will be providing all volunteers with personal protective equipment to use during their shift(s).

Notes

  • ALL volunteers will be required to follow health guidelines created by the Saskatoon Health Authority as well as 25th Street Theatre and will be responsible for cleaning, sanitizing, and promoting a safe place for everyone involved in the area they volunteer in.
  • To limit the amount of people interacting together, volunteers will be split into 3 groups and only be able to volunteer with the people in their group as well as only volunteer at the locations/shows designated to that group.
  • ALL volunteers are required to attend orientation and safety procedures. Date and time TBD, mostly likely will consist of a zoom meeting, or small in-person groups.
  • Volunteers will be responsible for their own transportation to each location.
