Volunteer this September to strengthen and sustain the arts in the Portland Metropolitan Region. Join the Creative Advocacy Network (CAN) to raise awareness and interest in the need for an increase in public funding for the arts. Sign up now to attend the Oregon Symphony at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, Art in the Pearl and/or T.B.A. as a member of the CAN Crew. Volunteers will be invited to attend a brief training, ready with materials, swag and talking points, clothed in a stylish CAN t-shirt and unleashed on the crowds to circulate surveys and sign up members.
If you’d like to sign up for one or more 3-hour shifts, please e-mail email@example.com or call 503-803-3729.
Together we CAN!
