Want to take part in creating Free City?

Here are two fun, easy ways to get involved:


Become a volunteer and help make Free City possible! You’ll meet artists from around the globe who are creating one-of-a-kind mural projects. And you’ll be part of a historic effort to reclaim the City of Flint, while showing the world the many ways that people are transforming Flint.

Before the festival

Spread the word: help us pass out fliers, share the event on Facebook, tell your friends at church, school, or work. You can download the image above to share digitally.

Be a Free City Ambassador: help welcome one of our 25+ visiting artists and performers to Flint. Many of them are looking to stay with a local resident – a spare bed, a couch, or even a floor will do!

Be a builder: do you have experience as a carpenter or contractor, or are you handy with tools and repairs? Roll up a sleeve and help an artist build their project.

During the festival

Information Desk: greet visitors, hand them information and maps, direct traffic.

Floater: walk the site and respond to problems.

Tech Crew: Troubleshoot technical issues with equipment, including generators, sound systems, laptops, and projectors.

Moving Crew: move equipment and other materials. Some heavy lifting required!

Clean-up: break down and de-install projects, and help us leave no trace of the festival when it’s over
