The iconic Alamo Cube, known simply as The Cube to many New Yorker's returns to its Astor Place home in late June.
To celebrate its return, the Village Alliance, The Strangers Project & Processional Arts Workshop are producing an event called 'Creativity Cubed', where New Yorkers young and old will share their Cube stories, and create their very own spinning replicas of Tony Rosenthal’s Alamo Cube.
Volunteers will help guide participants of all ages through a few simple steps to make their own cube from paper & card-stock and other materials in about 10-20 minutes.
The Village Alliance is seeking volunteers who can commit six hours, 11am to 5pm on June 18, and six hours on either (or both) June 19 & 20 to help run the craft workshop.
Full training will be provided by the Processional Arts Workshop, creators of the mini spinning cube concept.
VOLUNTEERS SHOULD BE:
• Outgoing with great people skills (especially with kids/parents), and be comfortable inviting passersby into the workshop, to get involved.
• Patient when instructing participants of all ages, skill sets and behaviors, including young children.
• Organized about workflow with the ability to multitask and keep calm when things get busy.
• A good team player and worker.
• Comfortable learning/applying/teaching some simple craft skills (cut, fold, tape, etc.).
• Any experience as a paper artist, maker/fabricator, elementary/arts teacher is useful but not essential.
