Being a volunteer is more than supporting First Person Arts, it’s meeting new people with the same interests as you and working together to bring a little extra joy to Philadelphia.
Neil Bardhan, First Person Arts Festival volunteer coordinator, was quoted in Generocity because of our excellent volunteer program.
“We have volunteers support our front of house staff, move furniture, interact with audiences, and fill in the gaps when we can’t be three places at once. Good volunteers are the lifeblood of our productions.” ~Neil Bardhan
