“Help! – volunteer needed. I have collected together thousands of photos, badges, posters, pamphlets and other material from our collected struggles of the last half century.
Does anyone have anytime to help me pull together a catalogue [or two] and an exhibition? The help needed is in sorting, collating, describing, curating… Could be fun. Email me if you are interested or want more details at andrew@andrewburgin.com
