Internationale Begegnung in Gemeinschaftsdiensten
Aged between 18-26
Since 1978, the Kulturfestival Graefelfing (www.kulturfestival.de) has taken place every two years on the first weekend of the summer holidays in a big park between Graefelfing and Munich. It is run by a local non-profit organization and it is free of charge. It will be the third time that the festival is supported by international volunteers. This year, the festival itself will be from the 26th until the 29th of July and about 15,000 visitors are expected throughout the whole event. There will be 4 different stages for the program of different types of music, theatre, dance and programs for children. In case of bad weather, the whole festival will take place inside big tents.
The workcamp will help the organizers in all phases of the festival. The main tasks will be setting up of all facilities at the festival site as well as the disassembly at the end. While the festival is running, the volunteers will assist in different areas: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. You will work closely with the people from the association. Volunteers should be flexible enough to work long and unusual hours and enjoy music. Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus.
Accommodation and food:
BC. Because the festival is taking place in a very urban area, it is difficult for the organisers to find accommodation for the volunteers. In the past volunteers were staying at a youth club, in an empty house or had a home stay at several members of the local team. Everything is possible and please note that arrangements might change and that everything is improvised - a typical festival experience
Location and leisure activities:
he small garden city of Graefelfing is 1,250 years old. The townscape is famous for its many villas from the beginning of the last century. Graefelfing has about 13,000 inhabitants and is situated very close to Munich (18min by S-train from Munich Central Station). Please be aware that during the duration of the workcamp there will not be much time for trips to Munich, even though it is very close. If you are interested in the touristic site of Munich, please plan some time before or after the camp.
