Lila Festival with Milchjugend (Wittnau AG)
Description: Milchjugend is a Swiss youth organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and additional young people who create spaces ("worlds") for themselves and their friends through deliberate action. In these worlds young people are given the opportunity to express themselves, get to know each other and gain confidence. This year Milchjugend is going to organize a big festival for the first time. The artists will explore gender, body and identity. The different forms of queer artistic creation meet each other and a young crowd. Dance and performance art presented in a more intimate and connected venue will also have its place. The entire festival venue will be transformed into one vibrant space of culture: various artistic interventions will surprise, fascinate, irritate and excite the visitors.
Type of Work: Volunteers will help setting up the stage and the infrastructure for the festival as well as pulling it down after the festival. Furthermore they will assume various tasks during the festival itself. These various tasks are for example helping at the bar or at the food stands, helping with the electronic infrastructure, looking after the artists, doing some cleaning work, etc.
Study Theme: The volunteers will have a workshop where we introduce our organization «Milchjugend» with all our projects. We will also talk about gender, sexuality, intersectionality and our mission to fight for a better world where everyone is allowed to be who they are. Of course this is not like a lesson at school – the volunteers are invited to discuss with us and develop our ideas.
Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep on mattresses in a civil defence bunker in the village, so you need to bring a warm sleeping bag. Food will partly be provided by the festival, partly volunteers will cook by themselves.
Language: The required camp language will be English and the local spoken language is Swiss German.
Approximate Location: The festival happens outside Wittnau, a small village located 50 km west of Zurich in a hilly region. The location is on a hill with a beautiful view and space for around 500 people.
