Studio Maintenance Weeks

Each season, STH needs several skilled handy people and organizers for various odd jobs, repairs, studio maintenance projects including electrical, patching and painting, deep cleaning and laundering, and general “whipping into shape” at both Park Slope and Gowanus locations. Half day and full day shifts are strongly preferred. Our volunteers may sign up for 1-hr of class for each hour volunteered. Please contact spoke@spokethehub.org and let us know your availability and what tasks you are interested in so that we can put your talents to good use!

Teen/College Students to Digitally Archive STH Photo, Video & Music Libraries
STH is seeking several very detail oriented, well-organized, and technically inclined young people to help digitalize STH’s massive 30+ years of photos, video and music, thanks to a grant from the Park Slope Civic Council and mentor-ship from NYC librarian/archivist Stephen Klein. Interested?


General Labor Support
We are looking for some young brawn with strong backs to help periodically setting up and striking our audience risers, and shelpping furniture up and down the stairs at Gowanus Arts, or to and from our studio on Union Street to Douglass Street and back again. Once the winter is upon us, we will need help shoveling the front of our community arts facilities before 9:00am on heavy snow days.
