Arbeit

Like in the workcamps of the previous years, volunteers are welcome to support the renovation in the surroundings of the local youth center. You can select from the various tasks below: to set up benches, to renew a volleyball field, to repair different enclosures, etc.
Volunteers will learn about different types of youth culture in Germany. As there will be contact with German native speakers, the workcamp is a good possibility to improve your German language skills.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The volunteers will stay at the local youth center called „House VI“. The group can cook for itself in a modern kitchen.

Lage und Freizeit

The leisure time program will be organized together with the local Eilenburg youth groups and clubs. The focus here lies on the encounter and the interaction with local adolescents. In addition, there are sports activities such as soccer, volleyball, swimming and bowling. There will be a cultural program and a trip to Leipzig and Berlin is scheduled. You can get to know the rich history of Eilenburg through guided tours in the museum and in the cellars, located on the hill in the city center.

Eilenburg is a small town with approx. 17.000 inhabitants, situated on the border of the „Duebener Heide“ and approximately 25km from Leipzig. Its rich history of over thousand years makes it easy to call it one of the cradles of Saxony. The rule of the Wettins-Dynasty beginning with the Earl of Ilburg in the 11th century continued until 1918. Part of their territory is the state of Saxony today.
In medieval times and during industrialization Eilenburg was a rich city. At the time of Martin Luther, its main business was brewery and in the 19th century, it was a national center of textile industries. However, Eilenburg was devastated several times in its history. In April 1945, Eilenburg was almost completely destroyed. The only evidence of former rich times that remained is the „Sorbenturm“ as a remaining part of the Ilburg. It is estimated that it was built in the 12th century at the highest part of the 220m x 150m plateau. A loop footpath outside the castle wall connects the „Sorbenturm“ with the „Amtshaus” (deanery), the former county court. This path was renovated with the help of the volunteers in the last workcamps.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The municipality of Eilenburg is offering successful workcamps for more than 12 years now. The workcamp host is always the youth club House 6 CLOUD (former name was “Falle” - “Trap”) which is located in former barracks. In the same building, you can find some more social, sportive and cultural projects. For former information, please visit https://www.haus6.org/

Arbeit

Volunteers are invited to support the further development of this centre. "Sustainable building and cooking" are the main two work areas of the workcamp. Participants will rotate from one area to the other according to the schedule, which will be organized during the first days of the workcamp.
Sustainable building:
In order to fight the combined threats of gentrification and densification that Berlin is currently facing, participants will build a mobile “KulturWerkHalle” under the technical guidance of "tiny collective". It will serve as a workspace, production and exhibition space for art, craft and cultural works. It will be constructed as a trailer, so it can be used everywhere where needed in the neighbourhood. Please also visit www.tinycollective.org for more information.
Sustainable cooking:
The participants will cook for the group in small teams. They will practise menu design using rescued, regional and seasonal food, in line with the sustainable principles of the KulturMarktHalle under the motto "Good and healthy together".

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will stay in the KulturMarktHalle building. Two rooms with some camp beds will be provided and a shower room in a close sports centre will also be available. Participants will take care of the catering themselves with the support of the KMH team.

Lage und Freizeit

Depending on how the pandemic develops until the workcamp´s start, participants should plan that only excursions together with the group may be possible. Some of the activities offered could be a visit to the Jewish cemetery, a visit to the island of Weißensee (Tinyhouse-Village), swimming in the natural Orankesee...
The KulturMarktHalle will participate again this year in the Carnival of Cultures, which has been postponed to August due to the Corona pandemic and will take place at different locations in Berlin on the weekend of 14-15 August. This will also be a cultural highlight for the participants of the workcamp.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The “KulturMarktHalle” (KMH) was founded in 2016 as a voluntary initiative by people from various professional and cultural backgrounds. Since then, it has been a meeting point for people working in arts and culture to develop local initiatives. Since 2018, it is located in a vacant building, formerly a department store. The area is part of the Prenzlauer Berg district, a vibrant and multicultural neighborhood. The vision of this project is bringing people from different social and cultural backgrounds together. Various exhibitions, seminars, concerts, cultural and educational events are scheduled. A workshop area (to work with materials like wood) will be completed soon, in order to offer more space for the creativity of its visitors. For more information, please visit: https://www.kulturmarkthalle-berlin.de/

This workcamp is part of INVOLVE and it is a joint effort of 3 voluntary service organisations in Italy (Legambiente), France (Solidarités Jeunesses) and Germany (ICJA) to promote and foster the inclusion of migrants in 7 local communities. The project aims to contribute to more sustainable, cohesive and inclusive societies. Therefore, the main project activities are in the areas of environmental protection and social and cultural heritage. The objective is to demonstrate that doing voluntary activities together provides opportunities for social exchange, civic engagement and for learning and growing as a community and society.
Involve Workcamps will also be held in five other project locations, three in Italy and two in France, in cooperation with the respective municipalities. Each work camp will bring together a total of 20 participants with very different cultural, social and economic backgrounds. In Berlin the international group will be composed of 5 old Berliners (long-term residents in Berlin), 5 new Berliners (newcomers to Berlin) and 10 participants from the project locations in France and Italy and from other countries worldwide.
The European cooperation project INVOLVE runs from January 2019 to December 2021 and is co-funded by the Asylum and Migration Fund (AMIF). For further information please see: http://www.involve.blog/

Please bring sleeping bags, comfortable and resistant work clothes (safety glasses and gloves will be provided by the KMH), swimming gear, music and some typical recipes from home.
-Special notes on the COVID 19 pandemic-
The accommodation offers enough space to keep a safe distance from each other. In addition, the KMH has a beautiful outdoor area that you can use. Some of the work itself will also take place outside in the fresh air. Other safety and hygiene measures will be implemented, such as providing hand sanitizers & face masks, information on proper hand washing, coughing & sneezing techniques, regular (self-)testing, etc. We will make sure that your workcamp experience is as safe and comfortable as possible! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. Please note that depending on the pandemic situation, it may be necessary for the group to stay together for the entire duration of the workcamp, in which case excursions will only be possible together. During the time of the workcamp, the hall is closed for other uses to ensure that contact with other groups of people remains as low and manageable as possible.
