Travail

The people of this place would like to advance on different projects with the group of volunteers and with neighbors who would join the team during this period:
- The carpentry workshop: for the moment it is a simple old hangar. The idea is to build wooden walls, straw and earth-straw and redo the roof. Natural materials are preferred.
- Improve the ”welcoming migrants room”: residents have just obtained a small prefabricated building to give their passing friends a more comfortable place. But it still needs to be properly insulated, finished fitting it out, fitting out the surroundings in anticipation of winter days. Here too, wood, straw and recovery are favored.
- The organization of a festive moment this place is also animated by festive moments, meetings, musical exchanges with friends, families, people from the neighborhood ... In order to end the work in a good mood with international volunteers, the locals want to organize a party. The volunteers will help to arrange the spaces, to set up the bar, the sound system, to decorate the place ... And then to party 😊
- Participation in the life of the house project: vegetable patch, site maintenance.

Logement et nourriture

ACCOMMODATION :
Volunteers will stay in a prefabricated module or in a tent, depending on the weather. Mattresses (and tents) will be available on site. The showers and the toilet will be outside.
Take your sleeping bag. Please note, nights can be very cool in Belgium

FOOD :
The collective kitchen will be available for the volunteers and they will prepare their meals themselves. Possibility of vegetarian food. The group will have access to the collective vegetable garden.

Situation, loisirs

The grouped housing is located in Ham sur Sambre, in the commune of Jemeppe sur Sambre, in the region of lower Sambre, in the province of Namur. This small town is located between Namur and Charleroi.

Partenaire

“Le Hameau de la Ferme du Terril” is an intergenerational house project with the status of a private foundation, founded in 2014, by citizens questioned by the unequal world in which they live. They want their place of life to be a place where they can experience another way of living, made of simplicity, solidarity, but also an alternative way of life, allowing them to limit their individual consumption by pooling resources.

“Le Hameau de la Ferme du Terril” is a grouped accommodation made up of 6 houses in which one 10 adults and 8 children live, from 20 months to 70 years old… many buildings and a field of 5 hectares on which several collective projects have already been carried out: large vegetable garden, orchard, ballad path on the slag heap, hut for children, chicken coop, fenced land for sheep. . Thus, if each family has its own house, the collective living spaces and the land belong to the foundation. The profit is disinterested. The objective is to maintain access to the housing project, built as a place for collective living, promoting living together.

The intention of the residents is that to welcome and open up, to the neighborhood, but also more broadly.

There are also collective spaces, some of which are furnished, such as a kitchen, a shower, a food storage and a laundry room. Others are in the process of being realized: pottery workshop, carpentry workshop and a multitude of others! In these spaces, the residents would like to be able to host meetings, workshops, training courses promoting the search for a simple and creative life, sharing of knowledge and skills,

This housing project is based on the philosophy of the Community Land Trust. Thus, if each family has its own house, the collective living spaces and the land belong to the foundation. The profit is disinterested. The objective is to maintain access to the housing project, built as a place for collective living, promoting living together.

For 3 year, the inhabitants of this place have welcomed 5 or 6 migrants in transit, three days a week in order to give them access to basic needs such as food, rest, warmth and hygiene (washing, washing clothes). These people are from Eritrea, they are guided by the Collective S13 which works with migrants who "camp" on the Spy motorway service, on their long migratory journey.

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. A bus line makes the connection with 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 old stones, history and museums lovers. Its cathedral is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here more about Tournai : http://en.visittournai.be

Partenaire

The school named "L’Enfance de l'Art" which means "childhood of Art”, founded in 1997, is an association which aims to help parents in their education role. The organisation aims to gather people willing to bring to their children into a creative learning environment where they can find the joy in learning and experience the richness of childhood rather than early specialisation or academic pressure. 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.

Altogether, those activities gather a total of 155 children. The nursery, the kindergarten and the primary school, which are all recognized by the authorities, are located in a former boarding school which was abandoned in 2004. This building in now in a process of renovation which the volunteers will take part in.

Travail

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 9th to September 11th 2022.

Logement et nourriture

ACCOMODATION :
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.

FOOD :
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.

Remarques

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! and your dancing outfit !

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