Art in the Park 2021 Summer Volunteer
This summer, the National Parks of Boston will be hosting an Art In The Park Program: Inspired By The Parks ! Starting Thursday, July 22, 2021, there will be an Art Cart, with craft and art supplies for public use. Visitors will have the chance to participate in a community art project, make postcards, create art inspired by the parks, and/or color coloring pages. The carts will run weekly throughout the season, Wednesdays at Bunker Hill in Charlestown, Thursdays at the Boston Harbor Island Welcome Center Downtown and Fridays at the Charlestown Navy Yard (Attached below is the calendar and time for the art carts). NBP is recruiting 5-10 volunteers ages 15-25 to work with the Art Carts this summer and earn community service hours!
Minimum commitment of 1 afternoon (12:30pm to 3:30pm) a week for 4+ weeks
Help set up and take down the Art Carts.
Help sanitize used supplies
Explain to visitors how they can participate in the program
Art Cart Schedule:
Bunker Hill Monument, Charlestown - Wednesdays, 1 - 3pm
Boston Harbor Islands Welcome Center, Rose Kennedy Greenway in Downtown Boston - Thursdays, 1 - 3pm
Charlestown Navy Yard, Charlestown - Fridays 1-3pm
The park wants to ensure that our volunteers feel safe in returning or joining the parks. Some actions to mitigate risks will be:
A pop up tent. With the high temperatures, we want to ensure staff, volunteers, and visitors stay cool.
Visitors will have clipboards and will spread out while creating their art to prevent crowding
Visitors will be able to keep any of the supplies that cannot be sanitized. The supplies that can be sanitized will be dropped off in a box for us to spray down at the end of the event.
Drop boxes to limit contact
We would love to have you helping at the art carts! If you are interested you can sign up at npbyouth.com/programs/volunteer or follow this microsoft form: https://bit.ly/2VCReP3
