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 provide instructions for you to help create a 1-page or 1/2 page history "Info Card" about a piece from our International Clothing and Textile Collection, or one of our cultural artifacts. The textile pieces will be displayed in our upcoming "Stories Textiles Tell Us" exhibit; or will be included as a cultural artifact in one of our Culture Exploration Kits. Upon completion you will receive a certificate.
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.
