Work-Trade Helpers

We are looking for energetic dreamers to trade part-time work for a shared room in the monastery in the low season or your own tent in the high season.

We are seeking 2 to 3 workers to trade behind-the-scenes support of our art projects (theatrical performances, concerts in a wide range of musical styles, art installations, and more!) in the roles of stage manager, lighting technician, administrative assistant, marketing assistant, and assistant chef. If you have artistic and building skills, please send us your portfolio — we would love help creating intricate hand-painted signs, a shade structure, bookshelves, and art installations. If you have musical or theater skills, send us samples of your work and we will consider your participation in performances from time to time.


  • Work 5 hours/day, 6 days/week, chip in €40/week for 3 meals/day

After your work each day, you are free to explore the countryside, make a day trip to Rome, Rieti, Assisi, or Spoleto, hike, hang out with the artists & other volunteers, or develop your art projects.

You can share a room in our lovely monastery or pitch your tent on the grounds. We ask that you stay with us for one week, with the option to extend your stay after you’ve been with us and gotten a feel for the place.

To see if we have space available for work-trade helpers, please contact Betsy McCall at volunteers@artmonastery.org or +39 333.153.7353.
