Arbeit

Volunteers will help on several aspects of the festival logistics, such as meals preparation for the entire team of the festival, assembling and dismantling of tents and structures, building and putting up the decorations, stage-managing, transport and unloading of material, installation of the market area, waste management,... Volunteers will work with all people working on the festival (technicians, stage managers, facilitators, organizers, cooks...). Hard physical work will be asked to volunteers so it is important to take this into account. Volunteers will also have lighter tasks like meal preparation, waste management, decorations,... The festival will take place from September 6th to September 8th 2019.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will sleep in tents during the workcamp. The living conditions are rudimentary close to conditions of a “scout camp”. Please bring your sleeping bag, mattress and toiletries. Nights can be very cold in Belgium. Before and after the festival, meals will be taken with the diverse teams of the festival. Sandwiches will be prepared for lunch and a warm meal for dinner. During the festival, volunteers will receive meal tickets to get warm meals from the caterer of the site.

Lage und Freizeit

The castle-farm of Marsinne, built in the XII century, is located in the old village of Couthuin (Commune of Héron), in the Province of Liège in Wallonia in Wallonia, the French-speaking part of Belgium. The site of the festival is about 10km away from the city of Huy and 40km away from the city of Liège. The caste-farm hosts also a brewery that produce a craft beer: the «Léopold 7».

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Marsinne Folk Festival is organized by the non-profit organisation «Musiques et Traditions» since 1992. This three-day long Folk Festival features balls, concerts, dancing workshops, a free stage, sessions, street and puppet theatre, as well as a market for instrument makers and craftsmen. Whether you are an experienced dancer, an enthusiastic music lover or a one-day passer-by, this is the place to be if you want to indulge in traditional music in a peaceful and easily accessible setting. Expect to find a friendly and family-oriented festival with a unique atmosphere and set in a spectacular location. When it is not on one of the three stages, musicians play spontaneously together, in the middle of the public or in the craft market. The lovely surroundings of the Marsinne castle-farm offer a unique atmosphere to the festival. We invite you to discover and enjoy what the oldest festival of traditional music Wallonia has to offer!

Anforderungen

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

Arbeit

This project is based on a dynamic meeting between the volunteers and the residents of the centre. The volunteers will help to restore a zone in the centre by clearing, cutting and pruning bushes, renovating paths in order to create for the residents a space for meeting and games. The volunteers will organize also leisure activities with the residents and specially youngsters and kids: sports, crafts, games, treasure hunt, film projection, debate… Feel free to bring your fresh ideas.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation will be provided in the centre. Volunteers will stay in a common room (dormitory) with shower and toilet). Smoking and drinking alcohol is strictly forbidden inside the centre.

Lage und Freizeit

Charleroi is the first big city of the French speaking part of Belgium. A major road and rail hub (but also by plane with its airport), Charleroi is an industrial centre but it has also an important cultural dimension thanks to his numerous museums and cultural activities. Charleroi has seen the birth of many cartoon drawing talents under whose statues characters adorn the city. During the weekend it will be possible to organise cultural visits and to travel to the biggest Belgian cities, easily reachable by train.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Jumet Charleroi Asylum Seeker Centre hosts people who have asked for asylum in Belgium. Many of them fled from war or persecution. Before these people may start their new lives, their refugee status has to be proven and accepted. While waiting for the documents that will enable them to remain legally in our country, the asylum seekers are accommodated in this centre. People living there await the solution concerning their administrative status. They never know what tomorrow may bring to them. Therefore, residents often found themselves overwhelmed by feelings of relief and anguish, hope and disappointment. The life of Jumet Charleroi Asylum Seeker Centre reflects these individual dramas and hopefulness of residents. Website (available in English): https://www.fedasil.be/en/reception-centres

Alcohol is strictly forbidden inside the centre. This project requests volunteers with a good level of motivation for its theme and who are prepared to integrate the life of an asylum seekers centre. We recommend them to a have an idea about the policy concerning refugees in their own country. In order to demonstrate this, we ask the candidate volunteers: - to send a short motivation letter - to answer our specific questionnaire (if you do not have it yet, please ask it to your sending organization). We will not confirm any placement request before the analysis of these documents.
