There are only
days until registration closes for Silicon Valley Open Studios
In order to keep the participation fees as low as possible and make this event a success, we rely on artist volunteers. We ask every participating artist to volunteer at least six hours to help make the event the best that it can be. Many of the volunteer opportunities are listed here. If you have an idea of how you can help but don't see it listed here, send us a short e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us about your idea and include how we can reach you for further discussion.

Work with registration manager to ensure that data for registered artists is entered into the SVOS on-line database and that the web page for each artists displays accurate information. Volunteers will be trained in the use of the SVOS data entry system and can enter data from their own internet connected computer. Following a short training session, you will enter artists registration information during the months of December and January. This will require 4 to 6 hours and can be spread out over three or four weeks.
