Festival Lila with Milchjugend (Zürich ZH)
Description: Milchjugend is a Swiss youth organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and other young people who create spaces for themselves and their friends through conscious action. 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 2nd time. The artists will explore gender, body and identity. Different forms of queer artistic creation interact with each other and a young crowd. Dance and performance art presented in a more intimate and connected venue will also have its place. The festival venue (a photo museum in the heart of Zürich) will be transformed into a vibrant space of culture. Various artistic interventions will surprise, fascinate, irritate and excite the visitors
Type of Work: You will help to set up the stage, the infrastructure and decorations for the festival, as well as dismantling the above-named things after the festival. Furthermore, you will assume various tasks during the festival itself. These tasks include assisting at the bar or at the food stands, helping with the electronic infrastructure, looking after the artists, doing some cleaning work, etc.
Study Theme: You will participate in a workshop where the organization «Milchjugend» and all our projects will be presented. 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 – you are invited to discuss with us and develop our ideas.
Accommodation: Unfortunately, Milchjugend will not be able to provide a hostel as such. They are currently trying to find an accommodation where all the volunteers could sleep in one location. Otherwise Milchjugend will accommodate you in the apartments of our resident organisers.
Language: The required camp language will be English and the local spoken language is Swiss German.
