This just in from the Ministry Of Stories, a creative writing school for young people based on Dave Eggers’ inspirational 826 schools in the US. As you can see, we need everything – including money, of course.
We really need help. Over the next month the rather bland carcass of 159 Hoxton Street, N1 will be transformed into a monster supply shop, with a Ministry of Stories secreted behind its humble facade. We are working with a great team of designers, but we need people power to make it happen in time.
We are going to be holding working parties and need volunteers to come along and help paint, build, arrange, clean and hold things steady whilst someone drills – you get the pictures. If you can make any of the following times, please just turn up and lend a hand.
WORKING PARTY TIMETABLE
evenings of Monday 18 October and Tuesdays 5, 12 & 19 October 5pm-10pm every Sunday from now until 24 October Monday 25 – Thursday 28 10am – 10pm
