Art on a plate – volunteers recruitment

We invite the students of the Faculty of Arts at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (UMCS) as well as the cultural studies students to participate in the educational project ‘Art on a plate’. Especially for volunteers we have prepared a 3-day training (18 – 20 November 2013) run by Janusz Byszewski – co-author of the Laboratory of Creative Education (Laboratorium Edukacji Twórczej, LET).                                                                        
Together with Labirynt Gallery’s staff, the volunteers will conduct artistic workshops for organised groups from 21 November to 8 December 2013. Those who decide to cooperate with us will take part in a free 5-month training in LET in 2014.

In order to enrol please send an e-mail at: edu@labirynt.com (including your full name, studies and a brief justification/explanation what motivates you to take part in the project).
