Slaughterhouse Shady Town
Description: Subhuset Holstebro is a non-profit organization driven by the youth (ages 18-21) in Holstebro. Our primary goal is to improve the youth culture in our city as well as the area surrounding it. We achieve this goal by seeking out artists (musicians as well as dancers, painters, sculptors etc.) that show an alternative side of the youth culture. This culture we are trying to portrait is almost non-existent in our region, not because it is bad, but simply because most artists choose to go for the bigger cities, where it is easier to find an audience. We have proved the sceptics wrong with every event, where great turnouts create amazing possibilities for a heightened understanding of culture in the youth, but also the possibility for new friendships and a betterment of social interaction is striking during our events. We, the persons running Subhuset, have experienced what volunteer work can do, how it can put smiles upon a face, and we wish for everyone to experience this, so we never close our doors for anyone with a good idea. It is all about helping each other. Subhuset Holstebro is located on in an old slaughterhouse factory. The raw cement floors and cold walls proved to be an excellent canvas on which we are creating a real, professional art/music house, with everything it needs.The Work Camp project in which the volunteers will be participating will take place in the 2017 annual City Festival of Holstebro. In the week before the City Festival, we will give the volunteers free hands for creating a building in our so-called aeurooeShady Townaeuro, which is a part of a cooperation between Subhuset Holstebro and several international artists. Cabaret, singing, dancing, visual art-performances and theatre will revive the old Slaughterhouse in a matter that will be true to the general aesthetic of the place, but not everything will be about machinery, killing of animals and blood. The project will engage the volunteers in all sorts of practical work, such as building a part of our Shady Town, but everything in between will be covered. During the day, kids and childs at heart will participate in workshops which we will develop alongside the volunteers. A mentionable workshop idea is aeurooecardboard warsaeuro, where the people of Holstebro will create buildings and armors of cardboard, which will end with a massive battle where thousands of bits and pieces of cardboard will fly though the air. This project is a great opportunity for anyone interested in culture. If a volunteer should happen to be a musician, there will be a great opportunity for an audience at the aeurooeBloody Cabaret Open Micaeuro, where anyone who wants, whether they have a story to tell, a song to sing or a melody to play can get on stage.Our Shady Town building will function as a aeurooebodegaaeuro during the evenings, where volunteers as well as the youth of Subhuset will host an innovative bar-experience. All profits will go towards Subhuset, so that we can create even more amazing events for the youth of our area.
Type of Work: As mentioned earlier, a lot of the work will be practical. There wonaeurot be much heavy lifting, but as a volunteer, you will be using your hands a lot. The main thing you will need to bring for our Work Camp, is your creative mind. Nothing during this week is written in stone, so if the volunteer group comes up with an amazing idea, we as hosts will do everything we can to come up with the resources to make it happen. Work in the week up to the Festival Week will be from 8 or 10 in the morning to 15 in the afternoon. During this time the volunteer group will take part in creating a wonderful atmosphere in the Shady Town.Work during the Festival Week will be very different. Some days it will be like the previous week. Some days it will be from midday to midnight, with 2-3 hours of free time for dinner and recreational activities. We will make sure, that no one will take part in exhausting work, and the volunteers will have plenty of breaks during the day. The purpose of the project is to reveal and create new forms of culture. Through this project, we will show the city, the country, and the world, that just because a town as 50.000 people in it that doesnaeurot mean, that 1.000.000 new ideas and ways of looking of culture arenaeurot right there, present in the heart of the city.
Accommodation: Sleeping facilities:During your 20 day stay, as a volunteer, you will stay in our City Camping site on the Slaughterhouse grounds along with the artists that will perform and create during the festivities. We will arrange for large tents or huts in which you will be sleeping. Special requests regarding not wanting to sleep in the same hut as others will need to be mentioned in the motivational letter. Bring a sleeping bag, a pillow, and sheets. Food:We will arrange for 1-3 meals a day. If only 1 or 2, we will set up a kitchen in order for you to go grocery shopping (right across the street), so that you can cook for each other. Kitchen bathroom facilities: We will arrange either for an outdoor kitchen or make one inside our facilities (also at the slaughterhouse). We will arrange for bathroom facilites.
Approximate Location: If you decide to spend 20 days in Holstebro, then we can guarantee that you will not regret it. The Danish summers are always wonderful, and in this time, the city will be full of life and light. Holstebro is a large municipal with an exciting city center with loads of shops, restaurants and bars as well as an astonishing art museum. We will provide the volunteers with ideas for places to see, and bikes so they can go there. Nothing is really far from anything in Holstebro, and the Slaughterhouse and Camping Site are close to the heart of the city.
