Description: The Youth Centre Velenje has been very active in its local environment. We already had three work camps in our organization.This year camp is completely different than the others. We would like to explore the culture of Fanzine during our Kunigunda festival. Participants will gain knowledge about Fanzine culture around the world and produce a Fanzine on its own together with local volunteers and camp leaders. We will provide a wide range of interesting study themes, with wich participants will be able to work and develop Fanzine. At the end we will publish and spread around our own Fanzine called kuniZINE. Participants will have possibility to visit all other activities, that we do during our festival (concerts, gallery exhibitions, theater plays, sports activities, performances and more)
Type of Work: - active participation in all workshops (exploring the Fanzine, study themes) -production of Fanzine (writing, drawing, collecting material and information, exploring and expressing its own point of view)
Study Theme: We would like that our Fanzine to express young people opinion about whatever is on their mind connected to the themes we will work on. We will present a big range of study themes, with wich participants will be able to get ideas and motivation to create Fanzine. Our themes will be technology and science, capitalism, feminism, environment and ecology, bridges-borders, art, music, everyday life, different movements and initiatives. Among the topics we will choose smaller topics and we will invite different young people (experts) to present content and explore theme together with participant
Accommodation: Volunteers will be accommodated in a Youth hostel which is located only 500 meters from the city center. Breakfast will be in the hostel kitchen, lunch will be provided in the location of Youth center as catering, where the whole team of festival of young cultures will eat and dinner participants will cook together for themselves.
Requirements: We are searching for volunteers who like to explore and express their own thoughts and point of views, are open to new ideas and creative. Volunteers should also be communicative and able to express themselves in English (not perfect English). A lot of motivation is also required. If a volunteer have any special artistic skill (graffiti, drawing, poetry, writing, photography,…) is great!
Notes: Note, that camp will happen during our Festival, so you can expect very active and full two weeks! We will provide more detail about accommodation and location in info sheet. We require specific age limit because of the dynamic of the group and the type of festival work.
