Opportunities to volunteer

Volunteers play a major role in every arts organization throughout Huntsville and Madison County. Each day in our community, volunteers are working to build sets, sew costumes, hang an exhibit, facilitate art projects for children, answer phones, stuff envelopes, raise funds and market upcoming events. Whether you’d like to volunteer directly with Arts Huntsville or a local theatre company, music group, dance company, museum, film studio or other arts organization, you can connect with these organizations through Arts Huntsville’s Arts Directory.

Arts Huntsville volunteers provide invaluable leadership and support for all our major programs. Arts Huntsville volunteers assist at the annual Panoply Arts Festival and also other events throughout the year.

Volunteering at Panoply

Panoply is a truly unique community volunteer opportunity, because all festival activities are organized by volunteers. A five person leadership team, with the assistance of Arts Huntsville staff, supervise between 100 and 150 committee chairmen who plan, organize and recruit shift volunteers for their committees. Altogether over 1,500 people are recruited to volunteer at Panoply the last weekend in April each year.

We are currently recruiting committee chairmen from the Huntsville/Madison County area, and in spring 2017 over 1,000 shift volunteers are needed at the festival in Big Spring International Park. There’s a role for every volunteer at Panoply, whether it’s a position as a committee chairman or a four-hour activity volunteer during the festival. To get on the mailing list to be notified about volunteer opportunities, or if you have questions about Panoply 2017 volunteer opportunities, please email Ashley Hudson at ahudson@artshuntsville.org

Other Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to Panoply, Arts Huntsville also has other volunteer opportunities throughout the year. We are currently seeking volunteers for The Color Run on September 3, 2016 and the Monte Sano Art Festival on September 17-18, 2016.
