Travail

In partnership with a social building firm, l'Enfance de l'Art organises a renovation workcamp in the previous boarding school, which has welcomed the new Waldorf School for seven years, as well as the kindergartens in two of the renewed buildings. The firm uses materials that respect the kids’ environment as well as natural techniques. Volunteers will work from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 12 am and from 2 pm to 4 pm, helping to restore a building in order to transform it into a welcoming place for kids (toilets, kitchen, dormitories, game room...) According to the progress of the camp, they will work in two or three teams and learn different techniques and activities : • eco-renovation : wall scraping, straw and earth / lime and hemp coating ; structure dismantling by sorting materials, painting • renovation of the outdoor area, garden planning • carpentry workshop to build furniture • participating in the management and creation of a quality collective kitchen

Logement et nourriture

ACCOMMODATION: On the workcamp place, in other buildings to be restored or in a tent (possibility to choose). • two showers and several toilets • a room to cook and eat • two dorms The atmosphere is like a 'scout' camp. Bring a sleeping bag, a torch (to move inside the buildings) and a toiletry kit (towels...) FOOD: The meals (light at lunch : sandwiches, salads, soup... and hot meal for dinner) will be prepared by a member of the organisation who will be helped by two volunteers in turns. The emphasis will be on a good management of a collective cookery in order to have quality meals with as few waste as possible.

Situation, loisirs

The building of “l’Ecole de la Providence” is located in Templeuve which is a small village close to the French border (2 km) and 20 km from Lille and 10 km from Tournai. There is a market and small shops in the village. There is a bus line that takes you to Tournai (every hour during the day). The countryside is flat, which makes it easy to bike (a few bikes will be available). Tournai is a touristic place for people in love with old stones, history and museums. Its cathedral is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Partenaire

"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 !
