Festival for the freedom of the peoples (Ancona)
Description: Festa per la Libertà dei Popoli NGO has been organising for 30 years already a multicultural festival which involves the whole city of Ancona and focuses on issues rarely tackled by the media. It aims at providing an alternative point of view and independent stand on issues such as coexistence, interculturality, peace and non violence, with an international dimension. For 3 days, at the Forte Altavilla (an ancient fortress in Ancona), the festival gathers moments of ethnic and folk music, ethnic kitchen, and meetings on various issues. This year, it will be entirely dedicated to the importance of the land for the inhabitants of the Earth. Local NGOs will also be involved, providing contents related to their main fields of actions through a meeting, a video projection, performances.
Type of Work: Volunteers will be involved in the setting up and the running of the festival (transportation of tables and other material for the restaurant area, support of the cooks, distribution of flyers, transport, etc). Volunteers will meet NGOs involved in the festival.
Study Theme: Volunteers wil have the chance to deepen their knowledge and experience on the main issues of the Festival with the local volunteers and the other NGOs involved.
Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep in a school (sleeping bag is required) and will have showers in a nearby premise where the kitchen is also located.
Language: English is required and will be the language of the workcamp. Some knowledge of the Italian language would be a plus. Other spoken languages talked at the festival are French and Spanish.
Requirements: Motivation and curiosity are required. We would like to host proactive people, willing to support the 30th anniversary of the Festival in this fantastic atmosphere!
Approximate Location: Ancona is the railway station. Ancona Falconara (AOI) is the nearest airport, but you can also fly to Bologna, Rome or Milan and then take a train or a Flixbus.
