This month we are celebrating Spring Healy in our Volunteer Spotlight! Spring is a lifelong Toledoan who is passionate about the arts. She graduated from the Toledo School for the Arts in 2013, and from Bowling Green State University in 2017, where she studied English and Arts Management. Now, Spring can be found spending time with her cat Ezra, or working at Black Kite Coffee, where she has been a barista for 6 years.
In 2015, Spring joined the Arts Commission as the very first Art Loop intern and now volunteers at the Art Loop on the third Thursday of every month. Spring says volunteering with the Arts Commission is a blast: “I love acting as an arts ambassador to my city - sharing knowledge and my favorite things about Toledo with the public. The hope and positivity reflected in the Toledo arts community is absolutely inspiring!”
Thank you for all of you help over the years, Spring!
Every 3rd Thursday | April-December
Art Loop volunteer positions are currently closed for this month. They will be available at the beginning of next month where you will be able to volunteer for the May-December Loop. The Loop is Toledo’s signature monthly arts experience. Loop guests are invited to explore the downtown creative community through self-guided tours of the art, artists, and spaces that inspire a vibrant Toledo. This is the perfect opportunity for those who love our city and want to canvas the streets touting all Toledo has to offer. New and seasoned volunteers are welcome!
Mini Maker Faire Exhibitor Attendant
Momentum | Saturday, September 15
Be part of Toledo's first Mini-Maker Faire! We're excited to partner with the Imagination Station Toledo to bring this showcase of creativity, arts and technology to the Momentum Festival on September 15, 2018. Other Maker Faires around the country have featured handmade crafts; cutting edge technology, unconventional tools or equipment, training courses in fringe skill sets, architecture and design sessions, music, science, art, and more. As a volunteer you'll provide event help as needed with maker breaks, water, and helping showcase a project as well as answer questions from the public regarding the attractions and fill any additional roles that may arise as the event unfolds. This is a fun and fast-paced event! Event day volunteers need to be be 18+ years of age, have a positive, friendly attitude, be focused, and be able to work both independently and in efficient teams to execute assignments. You will likely be on your feet a lot, surrounded by fascinating and curious people, machines, and projects!
