Now this is a call for volunteers for an outdoor art exhibition which will take place in St Siffret at the end of July. It seems a long way off, but there’s quite a lot of organization required. What happens is that gardens, courtyards and other unsuspecting places in the village of St Siffret will become art galleries for the 2 days. So not only does this require organizing, but it needs contributions and ideas. If you’re interested, then give them a call or send them an email
