Please consider volunteering your time, sharing your talents, helping to identify and implement community needs or donating money to advance our vision and objectives. Corporate grants and sponsorships would be most welcome. If your company has matching funds or a similar program that can help further our work, please let us know.
Our membership consists of residents, as well as out-of-towners, working to strengthen our commitment to and appreciation of the positive influence art plays in our lives. This is your opportunity to make a difference and support the fine, visual and media arts in Glen Ridge.
The bulk of volunteer activity happens in March and April as we plan and execute the annual Arts Festival in Glen Ridge. We need volunteers to help present the Annual Student Art Show, help coordinate volunteers during the day of the Festival and staff the GRAPA food tent. We also welcome new ideas and solutions that help students better experience the arts in class. We also welcome ideas about how to promote the arts in Glen Ridge through exhibitions and community events that showcase local and out-of-area professional artists at all levels.
Volunteers who want to create venues for artists to demonstrate technique and to mentor and advise art students and local residents are welcomed. GRAPA will endeavor to provide support for art related activities in the community.
