There is an advertisement for voluntary workers as below. If anyone wants to participate, please contact Kobayashi-san, a secretariat officer by 15th November. However, once the number of prospective workers will reach the capacity, we will arrange on a first-come-first-served basis. In addition, as for the position of managing the panel exhibition, which we advertised before, the vacancy has been filled. Thank you for your cooperation.

To whom may it concern;

Recently, the Yamagata Network is carrying out various operations in response to the disastrous situation caused by the East Japan Earthquake. Simultaneously, in Yamagata Prefecture, there are many people who also worry about their cultural properties by taking disaster-prevention measures. In order to respond to them, we will have a survey of the whitewashed warehouses owned by the private owners in Shonaicho. If someone is interested in this activity, please contact us.

  • Date: 19th November, 11:00am~
  • Place: a certain house in Shonaicho
  • Contents of Survey: confirming the present condition of cultural properties

In terms of the travel expenses, students will be subsidised by the Yamagata Network.
