Much of the success of Fresh Paint Springfield will depend on people promoting it to their communities and social networks. Street teams of 2 or 3 people work together to hand out flyers and hang them up at your schools, your work place, churches, supermarkets, or anywhere else that it can be publicly displayed. Street teams also promote the festival on their social media networks. Street teams are expected to begin promoting Fresh Paint in mid-May, and continuing until the close of the festival on June 8th.
Runners are responsible for retrieving and delivering supplies to artists while they work, and helping out with whatever needs doing in the moment. Runner shifts are 4 hours long, and will be needed from 8AM to 8PM from May 27 – June 9.
