The Silent Barn continues to build infrastructure for marketing and participation structures as wide-reaching as we can, and funds programs that bring as diverse a set of community voices into Silent Barn as possible.

Are you super organized and always getting things done and looking for ways to help out at silent barn? Stewdios Working Group is looking for someone that loves to take notes, schedule meetings & can clearly and consistently communicate information with the massive network of the other working groups that make up our collective! Commitment would be about 3 hrs/wk + weekly/bi-weekly meetings.

---> Grant Researchers, Writers and Editors:

Responsible for researching grants and/or the bulk of the writing and editing after we choose to pursue a particular grant. Great way to gain grant-writing experience and learn about nonprofit organizations and funding in the arts.
