Volunteering at the Box Factory for the Arts
From greeting the public to planning events, we depend on our members and volunteers to fulfill the mission of the Berrien Artists Guild. Please apply by completing our Volunteer Interest Form.
Volunteering at the Box has been a completely positive experience. It is very rewarding to be able to work with and become friends with so many talented and inspiring artists, musicians and members who all come together to make the Box such a unique place. It is a wonderful sense of community and even the building itself has a magical aura about it. I have especially enjoyed helping put on many of the special events like concerts, Makers Markets, and gallery shows. I feel very fortunate to be part of The Box Factory for the Arts!
One of my favorite volunteer activities is bartending for exhibit opening receptions. It’s especially fun to do with my husband and the Ulrey’s. When we work as a foursome, we have our routine down and everyone knows what to do. The Ulrey’s are known for their creative cocktail mixes. We get to meet and chat with so many interesting people. It’s wonderful to be in an environment where artists can talk about their work and share it with others. Everyone has such a good time! It’s a privilege to be part of the energy and camaraderie at the exhibit openings.
The best part (of volunteering) has been all the wonderful staff, artists and volunteers past and present that it has been my honor to work with over the years.
