Street team volunteer is responsible for helping get the word out about upcoming Columbus Arts Council events. You will be contacted anytime we have posters available to be picked up and distributed to downtown and local businesses. Hang them up at your schools, your work place, churches, supermarkets, or anywhere else that it can be publicly displayed. Make sure to inform us as to what places you have placed posters so we are sure not to send other volunteers to those areas that are already covered. You can also help as a street team volunteer by speaking about upcoming events at any social gathering or meeting that you attend. The Columbus Arts Council will provide the information for you to help promote such events. You can also help by sharing events on your own personal social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. Simply pressing the share button on a CAC status update from our Facebook page onto yours or sharing an upcoming event and inviting your friends would help the CAC get the word out.
