Get Involved!

Artisan’s Asylum is run by a very small paid staff and a large number of dedicated volunteers. We have dozens of people, with a wide range of skills and interests, working hard on creating a space and community to support the work we all want to do.

Some volunteer work requires a significant commitment of time and involves some membership-related compensation, and some requires very little commitment and is compensated by pizza and thanks. Some is high on the physical effort required, and some is entirely computer-based.

Here are some of our active volunteer opportunities & committees (all email is @artisansasylum.com)
