TASK

Saturday April 29th 3-6pm

Come join the Greensboro community as we engage in a collaborative tasking event!  

 TASK was originally created by artist Oliver Herring, who has developed it to be a self-generating improvisational event that takes place around the world.  

 TASK participants will be provided simple materials like cardboard, tape, aluminum foil, cloth, foam and other goods as they follow a simple set of rules: write a task for someone to complete and then randomly select a task to perform yourself. You can write and take as many tasks as you would like.  

Tasks can range and possibilities are endless..."Build a castle and defend it." "Elevate yourself four feet." "Sing someone a lullaby." This is a place for a group of people to play, innovate, collaborate, test and invent with one another and their surroundings!
