so we (Lien, Kata, Brittonie, Harry and me) had a meeting about the arts week today and so far these are our plans for the voluntary arts week which will take place from the 6th until the 14th of May! We will need volunteers (both lien and me won't be in the edinburgh most of that time! oh no!!) and help and motivation for all these things so let us know if you're up for helping out
we will do two tours through the forest - one on the 8th of May and one on the 12th - these should give people the chance to get to know more than just the obvious things about us - the history of the forest, the idea behind it, how to get involved AND what artists facilities we offer (like an open day) --- so when we actually do these tours there should be people working and being able to show some things in the screenprinting room, darkroom and everywhere else you can think about!
so we need:
people who do the tour itself
people who do workshops etc on the same days
we will put up a stall on the celebration event on the 7th of may!
we want to offer a lot of different activities there, possible things are:
- anyone has a badge-machine? it would be great if people could do their own badges, we can just bring some old magazines and paper and colored pencils etc and it's such a fun thing to do!
if they allow us to do it we will also sell things from the shop - do some new patches etc, plus we want to prepare some nice and easy food for people to take (for free)
here we will need:
-as many people as possible to
-help put up the stall
-stay there for the day
-do things from the list above or have ideas for other things we could do
apart from that -
harry will look for bands to play on the celebration event
we will send them our events programme for that week and they will advertise it on their website
either at the stall or at some point during that week it would be fun to build some kites in a workshop and then go to the meadows to let them fly and be happy
