I’m happy to announce that Y’all Connect has our new Volunteer Coordinator. His name is James Brown, and he’s had a long history of serving the Birmingham community.
I’ve known him since we worked together on a local monthly publication called Child Times. We’ve been neighbors and friends for many years, and I’ve seen firsthand the work he has done as a volunteer and filmmaker.
Since the Sidewalk Film Festival began in 1999, James has been a member of the community, attending salons, running venues, recruiting volunteers and even making movies (whether as director, actor or gofer). Read more about James on our Staff page.
He has already started working on the 2016 edition of Y’all Connect Presented by Alabama Power, and we can’t wait to see you there on June 10.
If you’re interested in volunteering, email James today at volunteer[at]yallconnect.com for more information. We’d especially love to hear from college instructors and administrators who have students available this summer.
