Volunteers will help run the festival through a wide range of tasks relating the implementation of the event, such as preparational works, cooking, clean-up, programme coordination, technical implementation, programme documentation (taking photos, videos, uploading them on our
social media platforms and website), communication (text writing in English), running info-points.
Volunteers will live in tents during the festival and are asked to bring their own tent. We provide 3 meals/day for our volunteers (breakfast, dinner, lunch – hot meal). Vegetarian option is available at every meal. We provide all equipment needed to fulfil your tasks, with few exceptions (e.g. if you would like to work as a photographer volunteer, you should bring your own devices).
Bánk is a tiny village in Nógrád County with its not-so-tiny Lake Bánk in the middle. It has everything a tiny village built around a lake could need: a small store, a tobacco shop, a pizza place, a pub, some hotels, motels and a lakeshore eatery. Plus the extremely friendly locals. Bánkitó Festival has been in town for 10 years, mostly around the Lakeshore and the Camp, though throughout the years, we ventured out to settle around the Reeds and the Meadow. Besides the lake, the small wooden cabins and the venues hiding around small clearings throughout the enclosing forest make Bánkitó the festival it is.
Bánkitó is Hungary’s biggest independent, socially conscious, cultural and community festival with a wide range of programmes throughout its four days in the summer from music through theatre to contemporary art. The 4-day long festival is located in the countryside and hosts 8000 visitors each year. It offers concerts, theater performances, exhibitions, civil initiatives, workshops, and round-table discussions about social justice issues, human rights, and the experiences and cultures of minorities. Next year, Bánkitó will take place for the 10th time in Bánk, a small Hungarian village 60kms away from Budapest. The programme of the festival is always organized around a common theme. In 2018, the topic will be 2028, and the future – of Bánk, of Hungary, of the world and the society we live in. More info: https://bankitofesztival.hu/?lang=en
