Popps requires that resident artists put in 10 hours per month to pitch in and help around the compound: general cleaning, building and grounds maintenance, building renovation projects, publications, p.r. and administrative assistance are some of the areas we always need help with. Please summarize your skills and experiences, which you think could best aid in helping and improving Popps Packing. We are occasionally able to subsidize part of the residency costs for special projects that add to or help support Popps’ infrastructure and design needs.
