*** Exhibition install volunteers needed! ***

Do you want to be part of the installation of an art exhibition and get a workout at the same time? Are you free next week?

The upcoming Ruth Watson exhibition at CoCA Toi Moroki Christchurch needs many hands on deck to move the components of the main installation.

It'll be an - as many hours as you can - kind of deal, however we'd love it if some of you could commit to a couple of days from Monday 11 to Friday 16 December (especially Monday!).

There will be health and safety briefings at 9:30am and 12:30pm each day, so please schedule to come to at least one of those.

In return, we will feed you (with pizza and sushi), provide drinks and you'll experience working to install a really impactful sculptural work with the artist on site, as well as our techs.

You'll need to wear covered shoes and clothes that you don't mind climbing about and lifting things in.
