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.

• 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,etc). 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! and your dancing outfit!

• One or two evening will be organize to initiate volunteers to folk dances.

• We aim to encourage the participation of refugees living in Belgium on this work camp.
