Call for Volunteers: Help us animate the Mending Project!
Montalvo is seeking volunteers to animate The Mending Project this fall. No special skills or qualifications in sewing are required—just an enjoyment in engaging in conversation with visitors. Volunteers will receive training beforehand on the project, how to engage with the public, and how to make very simple visible mends. Each day, a single volunteer mender will be present in the Cottage Two gallery space at Montalvo from noon to four, greeting visitors and engaging in conversations while making visible mends in the articles of clothing that visitors bring. Join us and be part of Lee Mingwei’s art work at Montalvo!
- Attend a workshop with artist Lee Mingwei on August 15 from 11-12 to learn about The Mending Project and how to engage with visitors as a Volunteer Mender
- Contribute a minimum of two afternoons of your time between the dates of September 18-December 8, 2019.
If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Mender, please email Karen McQuade before August 14.
