By The People depends on volunteers - and we'd love for you to be one of them! Volunteers staff check-in tables, help visitors navigate the festival's hub locations, and get a behind-the-scenes look at the event. And of course, we love to hook up our volunteers with a little swag as a thank you.

If you're interested in volunteering at By The People 2019, go ahead and sign up. And if you have any questions about volunteering, email us at


Open Calls

By The People 2019 included open calls for installation artists, performing artists, satellite locations, and art fair artists. Those open calls are now closed, but we look forward to sharing information about future open call opportunities.
