About

We are looking for volunteers with curiosity, expressive writing and editing skills, and maybe a bit of familiarity doing research via Wikipedia. Can you tell a cultural item’s intriguing, counter-intuitive, tragic, funny or astonishing history in a single page?

We will help you with detailed instructions, and you will help us create a 1-page or 1/2 page history "Info Card" about a piece from our International Clothing and Textile Collection which we use in exhibits and loan out to local educators, or for a cultural artifact incorporated into one of our Culture Exploration Kits.

CMLC Culture Exploration Kits are "portable museums" offered FREE to the community; carrying cases filled with cultural objects selected to inspire curiosity and enhance multicultural understanding across ALL AGE GROUPS.
