Verein MARK für kulturelle und soziale Arbeit is a social-profit organization that runs a cultural center in the city of Salzburg. The main goal of its work is to promote youth and young adults. We provide an open space for ideas and concepts and encourage people from all different backgrounds and (sub)cultures to participate in our projects and share their ideas. MARK is open to all kinds of music and arranges concerts and parties, especially for newcomers. We broadcast our own radio show, publish an online magazine and host competitions for young writers. Further, there is an emphasis on different projects promoting society and offering a conscious look into environmental and societal issues. Once a month, MARK transforms into an open wardrobe where clothes and accessories can be shared, every week there’s a public dinner where vegan food is cooked at a very affordable price for everyone interested, in a bike workshop people are encouraged to repair their bikes themselves (DIY).
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
A local standard accommodation (host family/ students dorm or apartment) is provided. The volunteer receives food money monthly from the host organization. Local transport is provided by the host organization.
