Volunteer Coordinator

The Red Poppy Art House is a multidisciplinary art space which hosts over 140 diverse multidisciplinary performance events per year, featuring music, poetry, dance, and literary events, as well as offering workshops and lectures. Not only do we present the best of local, national and international music of various genres, but we are a micro-center for artistic and intercultural life in San Francisco. Operating from an urban storefront of 650 square feet, the Red Poppy seeks to demonstrate the unique, powerful and irreplaceable capacity of small and intimate spaces, charting the course for an alternative model for community engagement in the arts.

As a primarily volunteer-based organization, the Volunteer Coordinator is an integral role within the Poppy team. This position requires impeccable organizational skills and exceptional interpersonal communication. The Volunteer Coordinator works in cooperation with the Poppy events calendar and the Host Coordinator in order to schedule and regularly fill shifts for our performances.

  • Monitoring and management of online resources
    • Events calendar

Time Commitment:

  • 20-28 hours per month, half of which can be done remotely

  • Free attendance for all (140) annual performances at the Red Poppy Art House, as well as a selection of performances by other arts presenting organizations which offer a limited number of comps.
  • Access to the Red Poppy’s professional development track speaker series featuring artists, arts leaders, community organizers and philanthropic representatives that span the Bay Area Arts ecology and beyond.
