Holland is driven by volunteers, and we’re always on the lookout for people to help us do what we do. If you’re interested in supporting Holland or volunteering, check out the below and see what makes sense for you…we’d love to rope you in!
Holland utilizes volunteers for almost everything we do–from running and booking shows, promoting events, creating fliers and posters, documenting shows and events, set-up and clean-up, gallery sitting, install and deinstall crew, venue maintenance, manning the door, garden help, library coordination, research projects, workshop support, as well as operational, administrative, and fundraising assistance!
If you’d like to volunteer, we ask that you attend a Volunteer Orientation meeting held on the second Wednesday of each month at 5:15PM. Shoot us an email (hollandreno[@]gmail.com) to let us know you’re coming and we’ll give you the lowdown. Meetings last about an hour, and then we’ll sign you up!
PS. If Wednesdays are never good for you (you have class or work or other responsibilities), let us know and we’ll work out an alternative date.
If you’d like to make a bigger commitment to Holland, you can think about serving on a committee or “corps” group. Committees include Programming, Gallery, and Operations; and Corps include Flier/Poster and Photography. For each, we ask you to make a minimum time commitment monthly, attend meetings, join specific listserves to correspond electronically, and carry out certain responsibilities. If you’d like to learn more about joining a committee or corps group, we suggest shooting us an email (info above) and hitting up a Volunteer Orientation meeting, where we can chat about Committee Roles and Responsibilities.
From time to time (almost always, actually), there are specific items we’re on the hunt for or are in desperate need of. If, for any reason, these things are easy for you to get, or you’re feeling generous, we’d be forever grateful for your procurement!
Here’s our current list:
-Adobe Suite CS6
-Gallery track lighting
-Canvas tote bags for silk-screening
-XLR Cables and Instrument Cables
-Digital video camera to better document shows
Of course, one of the easiest and most important ways to support Holland is to donate! Every little bit helps, and we are so grateful for every penny. Hop on over to the Donate page to learn more about your giving options and the difference you can make in supporting all-ages arts and music.
