are the key to the Sideshow - without everyone's help, we could not build
this magnificent machine. Participants (artists and musicians) are all
asked to volunteer four hours of time toward the Sideshow, but the truth
is, we will need many people to help pull this off. Volunteer duty can
take many forms; helping keep the space open as the show is being
up; helping create advertising for the show; baking food for the night
of the show; helping manage a stage at the show; working the bar at the
show; being security at the show; helping clean up after the Sideshow.
Some of it is mundane, some exciting, all of it is important.
We try and keep the requirements short - 4 hours is not a lot of time
for a show that runs two days and takes about a month to put on. Our
hope is that you will find your service fulfilling and make new friends
and help strengthen the art community here in Dayton. The more involved
you are, the more you will get out of the show - it is not just hanging
art at a show, but an opportunity to build something greater than you
could build on your own.
We are currently holding organizational meetings for the Sideshow 9 (see
the important dates section on the home page for the next meeting date).
At these meetings, we are constructing the framework that will support
the Sideshow. People are picking where they want to help and teams are
being built to carry out the plans. If you like the Sideshow and want
to see it succeed, please attend these meetings and see how you can help.
