"L’Enfance de l'Art", founded in 1997, is an association which aims at helping parents in their education role. The organisation aims to gather people willing to bring to their children a creative learning environment where they can find the joy in learning and experience the richness of childhood rather than early specialisation or academic hot-housing. Parents and professionals work together in the structures created by the organisation: leisure workshops, nurseries, schools, kindergarten. To do so, the association follows the principles of Steiner-Waldorf pedagogy. The organisation welcomes around 140 children aged from 0 to 12. The nursery, kindergarten and primary classes are recognized by the FWB (Wallonia Brussels federal institution) and are located in an old boarding school, « Dames de la Providence ». The premises are going to be bought but are actually rented for a very low price in order to avoid vandalism. They are old and have been abandoned since 2004 but the parents from the association have decided to handle their renovation. And here comes the workcamp !

Since its creation in 1994, “La Compagnie des Nouveaux Disparus” strives to give access to culture and - particularly theatre - to a socially disadvantaged public, less inclined to cultural activities. Democratisation of culture and promotion of diversity are the guiding principles of the company’s activities. These are divided in three types of projects: theatre plays creation, “Theâtres Nomades” festival and Mimouna Festival. Every summer, the Brussels Royal Park has hosted more than 60 theatre shows over 4 days for the Brussels theatre festival. The fountain and surrounding area are metamorphosed into a colourful nomad village made of marquees, caravans, Berber tents, and open-air stages. The programme is diversified through various shows for children, a circus, street theatre, classical theatre, puppet shows, as well as creative workshops on the stage of the Royal theatre of Brussels.

• This workcamp requires hard physical efforts at some moments and an active participation and involvement of volunteers during the workcamp, due to the deadlines set for the good progress of the festival. Volunteers are asked to prove a strong interest for the thematic of the festival. There will be 3 free days during the workcamp: two days during and one day after the festival. • It is also important to take into account the fact that the organisation of a festival might be subject to last minutes changes or unforeseen events (for example: the truck to unload doesn’t show up at the predicted time, a technical issue will delay the assembly of a stage,...). We are therefore expecting volunteers to be flexible and understanding in this kind of situation. • Please bring good working shoes, gloves, clothes that can get dirty and a raincoat in case of rainy weather (+ sleeping bag & mattress). If you have a music instrument or juggling material, feel free to bring it ! • One or two evening will be organize to initiate volunteers to folk dances. • A project-related motivation letter is required. • We aim to encourage the participation of refugees living in Belgium on this workcamp
