Attend the 2019 Planning Meetings

SOS is a fully independent organization run entirely by participating artists and arts supporters. We are not under the auspices of the Somerville Arts Council or any other city department. We need artists to help make the event happen. The next 2019 organizational meeting is on Wednesday January 9, 6:30 to 8:30 at Mad Oyster Studios, 2 Bradley Street.

For 2019, we're changing up the coordinator role in favor of a more organic model. Instead, we will foster individual groups of artists focusing specific tasks and goals. Periodic general meetings will the bring groups together and timeline managers will keep us on track. Check out some core initiatives or email us your thoughts at

Become a Volunteer

The simplest way to volunteer, and one of the most helpful to SOS, is to adopt a map stand for the week leading up to our main event. There are map stands all over the city where map books are offered to passers-by. Those stands tend to empty quickly and need to be filled in the morning and evening. It's a simple task to do and helps so much. If you are interested in helping to accomplish this task, please get in touch with our Map Book Distribution Coordinator, Christina Tedesco at She can connect you with map stand locations and slots that are available for adoption.

Volunteering is an excellent way to be connected with the Somerville arts community. You can also get involved in behind-the-scene preparation for Open Studios in some of the following areas: Operations, Fundraising, Graphics, Public Relations, Web Content Management, Short Administrative Tasks, and Miscellaneous Labor and Light Construction, and more.
