Work

We are looking for musicians able to create a street band to play Swing Music on the streets of these Clandestines. This project is a special art and culture project based on promoting the voluntary activism during these „clandestines“ or Swing/Lindy Hop performances/dancing. The volunteers will work play on the streets on different „Clandestines“ organised by different local Lindy Hop groups as a swing band while locals will dance Lindy Hop. They will help by playing live music while some giving visibility to citizens’ initiative and the European Solidarity Corps. The selected localities are those where there is currently a school or association of Lindy Hop and the volunteers will show their performances most probably in Denia, Villena, Elche, Altea, Alcoi, Alicante, Murcia and Sant Vicent del Raspeig. They will end up playing on a party to fund raise for environmental projects.

Accomodation and food

First days will be used to practise and group dynamics, and therefore the group will stay at a remote house to be able to create a repertory.

Work

Despite the fact that the spring and reservoir and canals and gardens were the origin and had been the lifeline of the town for ages, several years ago the spring and reservoir went dry. The gardens were abandoned. Almost all the fruit trees, save a few straggly pomegranates and figs, died. The town is close to the much larger city of Jaen and in recent decades many weekenders built vacation country homes and unauthorized wells that depleted the groundwater supply. A group of concerned residents under La Fuente de la Reja Association came together to reverse this situation. And they succeeded after a long, hard fight they managed to have the wells closed. The spring recently began to flow again, the reservoir is full of water, several of the collapsed terrace walls have been rebuilt, and a handful of old-timers and educated youths are planting gardens and selling their surplus produce in the village square. The association has recently bought some plots of land and want to use them to grow local vegetables, in a project that concerns all the agroecology of the area, together with the University of Pablo Olavide in Seville. The task of the volunteers will be rebuilding the walls from the ancient times and help the locals in the rehabilitation of the vegetable gardens.
