Volunteers

stARTup Fair Ambassador

We are looking for volunteers to help with various tasks during our three-day event from September 15-17, 2017 at the ACME Hotel in Chicago.

Fair Ambassadors work closely with our artists, operations team and partners. The role is varied and exciting, providing valuable experience for anyone interested in art events and contemporary art. Our Ambassadors are the face of the fair and the first point of contact for artists, partners and visitors. Tasks will include providing information and assistance, handing out fair guides, answering questions and collecting data. They will also provide support for artists exhibiting at the fair. Tasks will include assisting with load in and load out, and set-up. Many aspects of the fair are ever-changing so volunteers are expected to use common sense and their own initiative at all times. 

Ambassadors will be expected to take at least three, 3-hour shifts over the course of the weekend. For more information or questions, please contact:
