CALL TO ARTISTS

Think you would make an interesting Read?
AOE Arts Council’s Human Library will run during Nuit Blanche on September 21 between 6 p.m. and 1 a.m.
We are looking for artists to volunteer as books for shifts of about 3-4 hours during the night. As a book, people will ‘loan’ you out for 25 minutes to talk about you, your art and your life.

What do you have to do: Be your charming self! As a Human Library Book, you will be available for ‘loan’ to Nuit Blanche audiences for a conversation about you, your art and your life.
