  • Description

    Description

    We are looking for energetic, hardworking volunteers who can offer their skills as craftspeople, farmers, gardeners, sign painters, video editors, office admins, cooks, musicians, and stage managers to trade work and a small fee for a private tent and board at our farm-turned-monastery, the headquarters of our intentional art community.

    The Art Monastery Project seeks to create world-class art by applying monastic principles to art-making instead of religion. We are transforming a farm in southern Vermont into a monastery -- an ART monastery -- an international non-profit arts production center steeped in monastic practices.

    From May through September, we invite people to join us for 2 weeks or more. Please email us for more specific information and indicate your desired dates. Specifically in May 2017 we're looking for worktraders with experience building to help us install tent platforms, to transform an attic into a bedroom, and to further finish the transformation of our barn into a dance studio.

    While the summer is high arts-production season, spring and fall are filled with more community-oriented tasks, as well as a few artistic events. Everyone works hard, and we can always use help with the un-glamorous aspects of arts production. We need help organizing the living quarters & office, building lovely and sturdy shelving and storage, baking bread, making yogurt, driving shuttles to the train station, cooking, cleaning, helping organize our hard drives and physical archives, doing online marketing, heading up a series of research projects, and supporting whatever art projects are currently in the works. If you have artistic or musical skill, you may be able to find a collaborator or develop your own work in your off hours.
