Carnival 2018: Volunteer Sign-up!
The Carnival de Resistance is a traveling arts carnival, an eco-village demonstration project, and community engagement initiative. This year, our 7th annual residency will be held at Arch Street United Methodist Church in Philadelphia, and we expect this to be the most vibrant expression of the Carnival yet! For more detailed information about this residency, please visit our website at

We are so grateful for your willingness to dive into this wild project with us. We hope that your partnership in this topsy turvy world will inspire, refresh, and energize you.

Volunteers should be enthusiastic, dependable, and willing to engage with visitors of all backgrounds. The full realization of this project, as well as the safety of our visitors, depends on a solid crew of volunteers who are willing to take on specific roles and follow through with shift assignments. We literally could not do this without you!

Please feel free to sign up for multiple roles and shifts, according to your capacity and interest.
