At Still Moon Arts, we are always looking for volunteers to help make our organization and events spectacular. Whether you would like to volunteer for an event, or all year long, we would love for you to join us! Without volunteers our organization would not be where it is today, and because of the support of our dedicated volunteers, we are able to continue to grow. Here are a few ways that you can get involved:
The Still Moon Arts Youth Committee consists of youth aged 15-19 who are passionate about supporting Still Moon Art’s pillars of art, stewardship, and community, and in particular want to engage with other youth around these values. The Youth Ambassadors organize the Harvest Fair portion of the Moon Festival, as well as other workshops, events, and activities throughout the year. The committee holds monthly meetings and receives support and mentorship from the General Manager and Artistic Director. This year, our team is lucky to have eight incredible Youth Ambassadors who have demonstrated leadership in the community!
The 2019 Still Moon Arts Youth Committee is currently planning the Harvest Fair for this year’s Moon Festival. Check back later this year for updates on how and when you can apply to be a Youth Ambassador for next year!
Still Creek Streamkeepers
The Streamkeepers work towards making Still Creek a healthier stream for its ecosystems. We meet every 4th Monday of the month from 6:30-8:30 PM at Slocan Hall to plan activities for the community to take part in, learn about, and improve Still Creek!
The Communications Committee is a small but dedicated group of volunteers who meet quarterly to help put together the newsletter, keep Still Moon Arts active on social media channels, and sometimes contribute graphic design skills. Most of the work is done remotely – if you have specific communications, digital marketing, and/or graphic design skills, consider helping out on this specialized team!
Join the Board
Board members are elected for a 2-year term. The board consists of a president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary, and members-at-large. Within the board, there exists several committees, including Youth, Stewardship, Communications, Fundraising, Governance and Policy.
Board members are expected to:
- Attend monthly board meetings
- Uphold the society’s vision, mission statement, and values
- Maintain communication with board via email when needed
- Optional, but encouraged to participate in one or more of the society committees
New members of the board were elected for the 2019-2021 term in May at the Annual General Meeting. If you are interested in applying for the board for the 2020-2022 term, please call us. Applications will not be open until next year.
