Retro Music festival Jyva'Zik
Description: “Jyva’Zik festival” is a music festival that mixes retro and contemporary sounds with artists coming from all over Europe. The aim is to encourage open-mindedness, exchanges, and (north-south) cultural meetings. During two days, artists and NGO’s, working for a fairer and better world, will be present for this 10th edition. This event aims to promote, through a friendly atmosphere and world music, values such as human and environmental respect, peace and equality among people. www.jyvazik.be
Type of Work: Volunteers will help to set up and take down the temporary festival facilities (tents, fences, decor, stages…). They will work on some of the decoration elements (painting, drawing…) to highlight the theme of the twenties. During the festival, volunteers will have free days to attend the concerts. They will work with local volunteers.
Study Theme: The Jyva’Zik festival is an alternative festival that aims to promote local economy. The organizers will explain their approach at the beginning of the project and you will meet their local partner at the beginning of the project.
Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep in tents (in a large heated hangar). Showers and restrooms will be available. It is important to bring warm clothes and warm sleeping bags with you, knowing that the weather can be cold in Belgium at that time of the year!
Language: English and French.
