Whether you have time to volunteer, resources to share, the desire to experience, or expertise for hire; FOTA needs you.
Artists: FOTA is always looking for new artists and events to share with our community. If you are an artist that would like to provide a workshop, FestLab, exhibit, or performance please CONTACT US to make us aware of your talents!
Volunteers: FOTA is in need of organizational volunteers to assist the Board of Directors. There are many sub-committees that could benefit from greater support. FOTA Sub-committee’s consist of: Marketing & PR; Event Planning; Resource Development; Venue Organization; Budget & Contracts; and many others. If you feel you have some time to give and the ability to assist in a specific area please send us a note
Support: Donations of financial support are greatly appreciated. Funds received go directly back to the community. While it is important for Festival of the Arts to provide as many free events to the community as possible, it is also fundamentally critical that ALL artists are paid for their talents, and venues are compensated for their space. Funds are used to promote artistic, educational, and cultural activities within in our community. Donations can be made out to: Artworks-FOTA and mailed to: Festival of the Arts (FOTA), 226 N. Michigan Ave, Big Rapids, Michigan.
Audience: Events are only as successful as the level of participation received from our community. FOTA and the artists appreciate support in the form of audience attendance and interaction. This is one of the most rewarding ways in which you can support FOTA. We do all the work – you get all the benefits!
