Wedding Party Helpers Needed

Hello. We are looking to hire three art students for an event in New York City on Friday night, November 28, 2014 (the day after Thanksgiving). The event would be three hours, from 6pm to 9pm, and we would pay each student $250 for the event, asking the student to arrive 30 minutes early to help set up.

We (Josh and Greg) are getting married earlier that day at City Hall with just family present, but then having a party that night at Ink48, a rooftop hotel bar, for a larger group of friends and family. We have already hired a photographer for the party. It will not be a traditional wedding party (no dancing, no sit down dinner). Instead of dancing, the creative activity described below is an important element of the party.

Our plan is to have guests create signs, using black sign boards with white letters (the kinds of signs you see at old diners listing the day’s specials). The guests will be photographed with their signs, in a portrait photography or photobooth type experience, bringing out the individuality of each guest along with the content of their sign. Guests will be encouraged to do as many signs as they wish, and to be photographed individually, in groups, and with or without Josh and Greg.

We are hiring art students to help those guests whose creative juices don’t flow easily or any of the guests who just need encouragement. The art students should be able to offer sign suggestions that are unique, creative, festive and fun (and to help keep the signs and letters organized, and to keep the guests moving along at a steady clip). We are worried the guests will just write over and over “Congratulations”. It would be great if each sign could actually reveal something about the guest or his/her relationship to Josh and Greg. The students would be there to guide the guests to a more unique and creative sign. For example, if we have vacationed repeatedly with a guest, maybe the sign would list favorite places visited. If the guest had worked with one of us, maybe the sign would play off the agony or boredom of the workplace. If a group of guests had spent summers in a beach house together, maybe there would be a group sign about that experience. The signs should strive to say something special about the guest, Josh and Greg, as well as weddings, marriage, love, the struggle for marriage equality, the tragic silliness of life, etc.

We are hoping the signs will be both fun and personal, and the style of the photos would also be fun and personal. Maybe a couple would be photographed straight on with their sign, but then maybe the photographer would encourage them to play with it: hold it high, hide behind it, fight over it, kiss it, etc. All to bring out each person’s character and style. The entire series of photos from the night will be tied together by the repeated element of the signs. The art students would need to keep all that in mind in order to help guide the overall project. And of course, the students will need to encourage guests to make multiple signs, push them along gently but firmly (guests can’t take too long on one sign), and stretch for fun and unique signs. And the students will need to do all this while maintaining the festive celebratory mood of the party.

I hope this helps give you an idea of what we are looking for. We are open to students of many disciplines. Consideration will be given to those attuned to words and visual storytelling, as well as an appreciation of how a visual sign will be recreated in photography. Students with experience in helping others create art is also appreciated. Important skills will be communication, patience, enthusiasm for the project, quick creative thinking, and a strong ability to listen to guests and guide them quickly to a fun idea.

 

Date: 11/28, 6pm to 9pm

 

Compensation/; $250 for the evening
