This volunteer position is an excellent opportunity to learn more about socially engaged public art and interact with residents and visitors. It's also a great way to help this small organization bring more free, accessible public art to Greater Boston! We appreciate your time!

how you can help

In Public Trust, participants are asked to think of and make a promise, which will be turned into a drawing and posted on a 16' x 16' billboard by a team of artist ambassadors.

Volunteers will assist Paul Ramirez Jonas and the artist ambassadors in a variety of ways, including but not limited to:

  1. explain the artwork to passersby and encouraging them to participate
  2. photograph participants in front of the artwork with their camera phones
  3. survey participants to learn how they discovered Public Trust and gauge their experience with the artwork
  4. assist artists and staff during breaks and shift changeovers

Volunteer shifts are a minimum two hour commitment. Now + There will give each volunteer a free Public Trust t-shirt and other swag as a thank you!
