Ruckus Roots, a local non-profit organization, is seeking an energetic, optimistic mind for a TRASHFormation project to take place once a week, beginning in the month of January, (2014) and running for 2 or 3 months.

TRASHformation is an interactive, improvisational art experience that transforms community-generated waste into a substantially and collaboratively built art piece, aims to raise awareness about waste production and consumption while encouraging participants to explore their own creative capabilities.

We are seeking a lead artist to guide middle School- aged participants through the process of a TRASHformation. Artists must be capable of surveying recycled/reusable materials and work spontaneously, with children ages ranging between 10 and 13, to produce a finished work of art.

Design, building and large scale art experience, creative reuse of recycled/waste materials and knowledge of sustainability issues is a plus! Ability to think on your feet and adapt to changing circumstances also a plus.

This is a paid gig, with potential for future jobs. contact us at by December 20th, 2013.
