applying to the pw board

Being a pw board member is different from being a pw community member. Board members and community members collaborate and work together, but while commuinty members create art to show to the Brown community in pw spaces within tf green hall, pw board members keep the space clean, organized, and stocked with resources and opportunities so community members can make some kick-ass shit! So if you're interested in helping support other artists in making their work, this opportunity is for you.

But what does a pw board member DO, you ask? Here's a very brief list:

how to apply

board buddies

The PW board accepts new members once a semester. If you are interested in applying, please email Marielle or Lauren. We'll assign you a board buddy who will walk you through the process and answer any questions along the way. We'd love to get to know you in person in addition to reading your application.


A “get-together” (SCHMOOZE) of board members and prospective board members will be held soon before applications are due. It's just a chance to meet us in person and get to know each other. Please come, especially if you haven't spent much time at PW yet! It will be fun! Dates for next semester's new member schmooze will be announced soon.


Please answer the following following questions in your application: Your answers may be one-per-question, or simply formed as an entirety which touches on all of the above topics. We look forward to reading your applications!

To apply to the pw board you should be in at least your second semester of college - the first semester could be at Brown or another school. This is because there is so much to learn about how PW works, and we want our applicants to have some experience working on shows before applying. If you are a first semester freshmen, we still want to get to know you though! Come to the schmooze! Ask for a buddy to learn more about what the board does! Come work on shows!
