Perhaps I could interest you in...

Foo Fest call for Volunteers





On Saturday, August 11th, AS220 will host Foo Fest 2012. The 12 hour Fest features 20 musical performances on two stages (indoor and outdoor), interactive art installations, homemade games, dancing and local eats.

In order to pull this off, we need volunteers throughout the day! This is a great opportunity to experience first hand what makes Foo Fest a success year after year and helps to raise a significant amount of money to support AS220's programming.

Volunteer shifts are available from 9am-3am.

Every aspect of Foo Fest needs volunteers: set-up, entry/exit, info booth, runners, clean-up, etc. We are also in need of people who are capable of leading several volunteers for a few hours and volunteers with TIPS or EMT certification.

You will be rewarded with free admission and a drink ticket!

Please contact volunteer@as220.org for more information.

Sam Seidel

Hip-Hop Genius: Remixing High School Education

"Hip-hop innovators have always found value in things that mainstream society has deemed valueless–-whether it’s old records, the sides of train cars, or the lives of poor young people. Educators can learn from this by recognizing brilliance and beauty where it is often ignored."

--Sam Seidel, in an interview with Roy Christopher
