Paoli Fest Seeking Youth Leaders
Paoli Fest is a free music, art and film festival that will take place at JayCee Park in Paoli. Paoli Fest Youth Committee coordinator Jordana Greenberg is recruiting people to join the Paoli Fest Youth Committee to help out with this year’s Paoli Fest in August.
Anyone ages 8-18 can join the committee. People who join the committee will be able to contribute their ideas for the festival. Anyone who has ideas to improve the community or has a passion for music, art and performance can help greatly with planning the festival. Other activities people in the committee can be a part of are designing and programming the festival, creating art, curating showcases and more. The festival will be August 9-10, and volunteers can help at the festival as well. Up to ten members can join the committee, but additional events will be held that more people can help with.
“Paoli Fest is meant to be a reflection of community expression and to be a place where youth are empowered and heard. Their perspectives, ideas and desires are central to creating something that is truly reflective of our potential as a community,” said Greenberg.
Coordinators of the youth committee will be providing workshops throughout the year leading up to the festival on topics such as musical performance, multi-media art, music business and what a career in the arts looks like. Anyone can join the youth committee by emailing Greenberg firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (812) 320-1541. The committee will be meeting the second Monday of each month, and the time and place is to be discussed.
Joining this committee would be a great opportunity to help out with the festival and contribute new ideas.
