I’m excited to announce a project. The Signet Office is organizing a fundraiser for MasksOn.org, a nonprofit making PPE for medical workers from scuba masks, which we will fund through the Fab Foundation (https://fabfoundation.org).
As artists we are in a remarkable position where we can leverage something we love doing to have a bigger impact on something important: protecting those who are serving our communities.
Please do not feel any pressure to participate. This project is intended to be a fun and fulfilling way to fill the “project gap” many of us are feeling. Please know that I will continue to value you and your work if you give this project a pass.
Scribal participants will create some scribal art. We will collect photos of them all on June 14 and will conduct an auction shortly thereafter where anyone can bid to be the owner of the piece you created. The Signet Office will collect the funds, handle the donation, and then help coordinate delivery of the pieces.
I know many of us are struggling financially. If you need funds to acquire the supplies you need for your project, please let me know, and we will do our best to provide help .
On the form, there is a question about whether you would like to collaborate with another scribe. Since many of us could use some human connection, we would like to help connect you to another scribe by facilitating a joint project. You can, of course, work with anyone you like, or by yourself, but if you would like to use this as an opportunity to collaborate with someone different, we’ll happily match you up.
On the website, you’ll find a few inspiration ideas, but please feel free to create a piece that will make your scribal heart happy.
Please reach out to Mariette, Feilinn, Thyra, Gundormr, Marieta or me with any questions.
Stay tuned for more details as we work things out/realize whatever we forgot.
