What is the most fun about volunteering at the Workhouse?
Working with the office staff and with the artists. I found it to be stimulating and educational. Everyone knows their areas of expertise and everyone shares openly and kindly with one another.
Did you learn a new skill or make any new friends while volunteering at the Workhouse?
Oh, yes! Both. I felt so welcomed into “the Group” and now count artists among my buddies.
What is your favorite volunteering activity at the Workhouse (you can list as many as you want)?
Well, as a production assistant, I did a wide variety of tasks for the events I’ve worked. I think I appreciated working closely with Elena and learning from her. She’s so well-organized and showed great leadership. She was very clear when explaining whatever task needed to be accomplished; then left me to do it.
Would you encourage friends and family to volunteer at the Workhouse and why?
I would and in fact already have. For the Collect! 2020 event – the theme was Woodstock and I got some friends to volunteer for the art raffle; they came in full 1969-era outfits and had a great time!
