P&J Volunteer Opportunities
FEATURED Volunteer Opportunity
GET INVOLVED IN PEACE CRANES
Do you want to contribute to the making of the Peace Cranes exhibition? Choose from three volunteering opportunities.
- Help us thread some of the throusands of origami cranes which will transform the entire space of St. John’s Church into a bird sanctuary to peace and hope. All you need is a few hours or days in June and July 2021. To sign up email us at origamicranes[at]peaceandjustice.org.uk and we will be in touch with all the further details about our artist- and curators-led Peace Cranes workshop onsite, as well as opportunities to help from home. The onsite workshops adhere to all Public Health Government Guidance.
- Join our team of volunteer exhibition guides during the Peace Cranes exhibition, if threading origami cranes is not your forte. All you need is a few hours or days from 7 August until 28 August 2021 as part of Just Festival – Edinburgh’s social justice and human rights festival, which has been an important part of the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival for over twenty years. Please email us to sign up and we will be in touch with further details during July 2021.
- Enable us to get closer to our exhibition funding target. We are aiming to extend the Peace Cranes exhibition until November 2021 leading up to the UN COP26 Climate Change Conference to be held in Glasgow. Please, consider donating here. Just insert “Peace Cranes” in the Comment Box. We are grateful for the support of all our current exhibition funding partners, including Creative Scotland and the William Syson Foundation.
