   About the Position

Impact Statement
Volunteers are welcome to become a part of this healing, art-based project. Family, corporate groups and teams of all kinds can contribute to help us prepare for the launch of the complete project before May.

From Behind the Mask is a community quilt being designed with forms of a mask that people can create with a personal message about this past year.

Description
Roles are available for all types of skillsets and abilities. This position is for sewing bias tape straps for the quilt structure. Sewing experience is required. Volunteers will need to have access to an iron and sewing machine. Volunteers will receive a box of supplies and clear instructions to help create our quilt's structure. Supplies includes: pre-cut fabric, bias tape maker, white thread.

Volunteers can assist with each stage of this ever-growing project. This is an opportunity to come together - while apart - and make something that will remain as a memorial, acknowledge inequality, and act as a starting point for healing. Contact us if you have an interest.
