Each year since 2010, before the Museums Alaska Annual Meeting, a group of volunteers gives their time to complete a project for a museum in the conference community.
2019 ANGELS PROJECTS
This year for the first time we will hold two Angels Projects on Tuesday, September 24th from 9am-4pm. The hosting institutions will be the Kodiak Historical Museum and the Alutiiq Museum & Archaeological Repository. The projects may involve some aspects of the following:
- inventorying collections
- improving storage of collections
- archaeological collections
- documenting archival collection content
- rehousing archival materials
- ethnographic/contemporary art pieces needing custom box-making
- Past Perfect database entry
VOLUNTEER SEPTEMBER 24, 2019
If interested in volunteering for this year's Angels Projects, contact us! Please write an email to let us know 1) if you consider any of the above areas to be a strength in your skillset and 2) if any of these areas are of particular interest to you (if not, that is fine, too!). This information will help us decide which Angels Project would be the best fit for you.
