Get paid to make art and learn about climate change!
Bangladeshi-American artist and climate activist Monica Jahan Bose is launching a new temporary public art display and needs your help to create it! This November, Monica and her team are starting work on WRAPture, a public art installation that will wrap 5 buildings in Historic Anacostia on April 4, April 14, and May 9. Over the next 6 months Monica will be collaborating with community members to create these saris. 
Monica seeks paid assistants* to sign up for the workshops as well as student interns who will receive community service credit. Participants will learn woodblock printing, create artwork that will be displayed, and discuss and learn about the effects of climate change.
