The 28th Annual City of Sunnyvale “Hands on the Arts” Festival is scheduled for Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The festival features hands-on art workshops for children ages 3-12, storytelling, live performances and a variety of food. To staff this 2,000+ participant event, the Community Services Division relies on the assistance of over 200 volunteers who are needed to assist artists in conducting workshops and preparing supplies before the event. No artistic ability is required and all volunteers will receive a commemorative event t-shirt! First-time volunteers are required to be fingerprinted. For more information regarding volunteering, please call (408) 730-7350 or visit HandsOnTheArts.inSunnyvale.com.
In addition to volunteers, artists are also needed for this wonderful community event. Do you have a visual or performing arts project or know someone that would like to share it with over 1,000 children and their families? If so, applications will be available January 2, 2014. The cost of supplies for the workshop and a stipend will be offered to artists who are selected to participate. For more information, please contact Kristin Dance at (408) 730-7758 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
