The iMAGInada - Space for freedom of expression
Description: The iMAGInada is a self-sustaining festival promoted by a cultural association formed by young people with a concern: to offer an alternative to the current economic, social and cultural model through the creation of spaces for exchange, empowerment, participation, dynamic and self-sustainability in the framework of the annual festivities of the city.
For four days, the iMAGInada is a community initiative that offers cultural and artistic programming. It becomes a critical and creative space around: the dissemination of artists and local associative movements, exchange of knowledge, social inclusion, reflection and individual growth, intercultural contact and recreation conscious.

Type of Work: Volunteers will help in tasks related to preparations and logistics for the festival: assembling and dismantling of the spaces and infrastructure, setting of space, activities for the children, preparing the social activities (such as forums, world dinners, etc), supporting the kitchen and the bar of the festival and other tasks helping the organization.
In order to facilitate the logistics of the coordinators of the Volunteer Field, we will make two groups of volunteers (of 5 people each approx) of 6 hours of work every day. One group will do the work in the morning and in the afternoon and the other in the evening.
Afternoon shift: 15 - 21h Night shift: 21 - 3h
All hours are approximate and depend on the needs of the space itself.
Study Theme: In our own iMAGInada we have a Forum Space where we talk about different current conflicts, such as refugees, education, food, health, housing ... and we think it would be very interesting to participate in these spaces (usually in Catalan or Spanish).
In general, the project pursues the defense of freedom of expression and alternative methodologies, of social and community transformation.
We will put them in context of the reality of our environment and project and we will do some discovery of a project that is taking place locally and that may be of interest to you.
Accommodation: The accommodation will be in a local school with one community room to sleep, one room designated for cooking and bathrooms with showers.
Please, bring your sleeping bag!
Regarding meals, they will be prepared together in the kitchen and during the days of the festival they will be in the space of the project with the local volunteers.
The food will be bought and provided. And the rest of the days they will have money and will be managed by the group according to needs.
Language: English, Spanish and Catalan
Requirements: Please, bring your sleeping bag!
