Volunteers Welcome At Silk Road Rising!Want to be closer to the artists and artistry at Silk Road Rising?

A variety of volunteer opportunities afford supporters the chance to get involved at a grassroots level, from serving on a committee to serving on our board!  

We're also looking to identify individuals who can offer pro bono professional services particularly in the areas of event planning, social media, and press relations.

Contact us today at malik@silkroadrising.org to introduce yourself and to discuss your areas of interest.  Please attach your CV or resume, or simply discuss your professional experience in the body of the email!  Our Executive Director, Malik Gillani, will be in touch to talk about opportunities that match your skills and our needs.

A Note from a Board Member:

I got involved with Silk Road Rising first, because of their high-quality stage productions. I kept coming back because, in learning about people I initially thought were different from me, I learned instead how similar we all are. I joined the board because of this organization's innovative approach to inclusive storytelling--with "Theater on Demand" and its online video and ease of accessibility; with community engagement through approaches such as "Mosque Alert," in which audiences help build characters and, ultimately, a play. Silk Road productions--whether online video plays, staged readings or full-blown productions--inspire me to think beyond myself and to approach others with empathy and respect.
