World Music Festival Esperanzah
Description: “Esperanzah” is a world music festival whose aim is to encourage open-mindedness, exchanges, and cultural meeting. Each year the event gathers for 3 days musicians from all over the world and lots of associations working for a fairer and better world. Through music and party, the whole event promotes human, environmental and pacifist values.
Type of Work: Together with local volunteers, international volunteers will help to set up and take down the temporary festival facilities (tents, fences, decoration, stages…). They might make some of the decoration elements (painting, drawing…). During the festival, volunteers will be free to attend the concerts. We ask the whole group to take time, at the beginning of the festival, to meet the associations working on the festival and to learn about their activities and the alternatives proposed.
Study Theme: Right to food, sustainable living, dreaming another world.
Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep in group in one of the premises of the Abbey. Take your mattress and your sleeping bag with you.
Requirements: Physical work. Show a sense of initiative, be creative and open to meet people
Approximate Location: The festival will take place in the beautiful Abbey of Floreffe, close to Namur (in the South of Belgium).
Notes: Not accessible to wheelchairs. This workcamp is part of the Create a Climate for Peace Campaign, which is a worldwide campaign of all SCI activists and branches launched officially in 2014. Its main aim is contributing to the transformation of our cultures from consumerism and violence towards sustainability and peace on all levels. The Campaign consists of various activities, workcamps and seminars connected to raising awareness about climate justice, sustainable living, peace and social inclusion and applying related knowledge and tools in practice (http://www.sciint.org/climate-justice-campaign).
