Street art and street circus festival PlusQ'lîle (Biel/Bienne BE)
Description: „plusQ‘île“ is a street art and street circus festival that has taken place on the lakeshore of the city of Biel the last three years. It started off on almost an island – a „presqu‘île“ in French. In its eighth edition this year, it is expected to present to an ever-larger audience – families and passers-by – acts that take place both under tent tarps and in the open air. The festival has a festive and warm atmosphere, with a programme that offers something for everyone. Exclusively vegetarian food stands serve dishes from all over the world. And at the bar, regional products find happy customers.
Type of Work: - Setting up / taking down infrastructure (tents, circus tents, bar, wheelchair ramps) - Helping out in the kitchen, potentially at the bar - Waste management - Cleaning
Study Theme: The aim of the festival is to invite a large audience to discover art and culture. In line with this philosophy, we don’t charge an entrance fee, so that the festival is truly open to all. The artists are paid by money collected during the act. The festival does not aim to generate a profit, but pursues social and cultural objectives. Each year, professional artists and from circus schools participate in the programme, so that both amateurs and professionals contribute. To protect nature, the festival has become entirely vegetarian starting in the year 2017.
Accommodation: It is possible to sleep on the festival site, in the circus tents. There are toilets on site as well. The lake and public showers on the lake shore are available, but there is not actually a closed shower. It is however possible to take showers at the houses of the committee members (ca 5-10mins walking distance). There is no access to internet, and there is no washing machine. Meals are provided.
Language: English and / or German and / or French
Notes: It is possible to attend the workcamp with children, but the parents have to be responsible for their children.
