Currrent Volunteer Opportunities


Benefit Gala Volunteers

Hi Volunteers, art lovers and artists! We are looking for volunteers for our annual gala. We’ll be programming over 90 artists this year so that means we’re going to need quite a bit of help. The Chashama Gala is always an enchanting and fascinating experience that is full of unexpected surprises. You'll get a behind the scenes experience on how to put on such an immersive event. This year it will be held at:

Thursday, June 8th, 2017
Gala: 6 PM - 9 PM
After Party: 9 PM - 12 PM
At the Former Conde Nast Building
4 Times Square, New York, NY 10036
22nd Floor

They'll be a wide range of tasks depending on your expertise. If you're looking for something a little mellow, we'll be needing some logistical help with tasks such as:

  • Coat Check
  • Guiding and directing guest flow around the space, checking capacity
  • Queuing guests for specific artist installations
  • Performer/Green Room Assistance
  • Guest Admin (getting name/e-mails of photobooth participants)
  • Day of Setup and Strike before and after the event

If you're looking for something that requires more expertise, please let us know of any skills artistic, art-handling, administrative or other and we'll see if we can find a good fit for you during the Gala.

Volunteers will be needed throughout the day:

2 PM - 6 PM (event setup)
6PM - 9 PM (Gala portion)
9PM - 12 AM (Afterparty)
