It takes a village…
Volunteering for the CURRENTS New Media festival is a great way to introduce yourself to a global community of artists and innovators. Every year, an extended family of supporters provides the finishing touch on creating a world-class festival. Whether you live in New Mexico or travel here each year to enjoy Santa Fe and volunteer with the festival, we appreciate your efforts, expertise and dedication. If you’re interested in volunteering for Currents, please let us know using the form below.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CURRENTS 2020 will be held entirely online August 21-30. Because of this, we will no longer need festival volunteers for 2020. Check out our Festival Page for updates!
