Web designer and developer needed to create a web interface for a digital version of the Monument Quilt. The Monument Quilt is an on-going collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. Written, stitched, and painted onto red fabric, our stories are displayed in city and town centers to create and demand public space to heal. The digital quilt will integrate images of the fabric squares with video and audio from survivors, including a feature where people can add their video or audio story to their quilt square.
Applicants should send work samples, resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 6th.
Project completion deadline: October 1
