VOLUNTEER FOR UPCOMING F*CK U! EVENTS
F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way is a complex project that includes an art exhibition, performance, video and a reunion of women who were original Womanhouse artists. You can help make this a truly historic project. We've created a wide variety of volunteer opportunities that are as short as couple of hours to full-scale multi-week projects. Through SignUp.com, you can choose how much and when you volunteer. With many people doing a little something, no one has to miss an event working the entire time.
We are offering the following incentives for volunteers:
Volunteer 1 - 14 hours and you are mentioned in the F*U catalog and thanked
Volunteer 15 hours and you also receive a Creating Space poster
Volunteer 16 - 40 hours and you also receive a F*ck U! catalog that will be published after the show ends
Volunteer more than 40 hours and you also receive a F*ck U! video which will be created by Mido Lee after the show ends.
