Spudnik Press Cooperative offers many volunteer opportunities that directly contribute to the success of our mission, as we aim to provide affordable and approachable printmaking facilities and services to a diverse community of emerging artists, established artists, youth, and adults.
Volunteer Nights are monthly opportunities for members (or anyone who wants to lend a hand) to help keep our studio clean and organized, to contribute upcoming events and special projects, and to meet other members. Volunteer Nights are social and fun ways to support your local printshop. Volunteer Nights, led by Spudnik Press staff, are scheduled on the second Wednesday of odd months, and on the second Thursday of even months (starting in February 2017).
