BASIC INFO: Organisation: La Guajira https://laguajiradealmeria.com/ ; Activity location: Almería Spain; Start: 01/02/2021 to 31/10/2021; Duration: 36 weeks; Deadline to apply: 04/01/2021; Activity topics: Creativity and culture
La Guajira stands up for the suburbs. Culture, Flamenco and Self-management. La Guajira is opting for the European Solidarity Corps as a means to present the social and artistic activity of a neighborhood in danger of social exclusion in the city of Almería (Almedina/old town/la Chanca), through the photo, audio and video documentation that shows the everyday life of the association and artists as well as the work that we have been doing since it was created eight years ago in this peculiar environment. Furthermore, the association offers a wide cultural program focused on meeting the cultural needs of the people of the neighborhood and the city, with the aim of serving as a platform for experience exchanges and acquisition of new skills and knowledge.
The volunteers will help to develop cultural activities and give support for the communication (Graphic design) and audiovisual streaming and archive, documenting everyday life, shows, projects, etc. We look for the contribution of three volunteers during 9 months, who will be supervised by the staff of the organization, will take part of the team exchanging ideas and collaborating to produce them. We hope this project will be a window that shows, from a local to an international level, the cultural wealth of the neighborhood as a tool for social change through independent cultural management
HOW TO APPLY:
We will study carefully all applications and selected candidates will be invited for a Skype interview. The selection of volunteers will take place in the upcoming weeks.
For the selection of the volunteers we will need:
– Europass CV with picture (made in the last month) with Skype username included.
– Motivational letter, writing that your sending organisation will be “Enjoy Sicily”. We ask all candidates to send a specific letter of motivation – why they want to volunteer with us rather than just a general EVS one. The volunteer is chosen according to his/her motivation and interest in the project and the activities. It will be paid special attention to cover letters.
