The work of volunteers will be to paint city walls. And create murals and drawings according to common agreement on topic and global idea of intervention. The townhall will provide the bucket paints and maybe some spray paints so that volunteers can create their art on the big walls around the town.
We are looking for an artistic co leader for this project. The task of the co leader will be to organise the art work, help the volunteers on their designs.
In this project, the first day are usually very important and caotic as the volunteers are designing their artworks on the paper and mostly they don’t know how to fit their ideas to a wall and work as a team in the art field. The artistic leader will guide the volunteers in order to create harmony in their art works and if its needed show them some techniques to improve their work.
The accommodation will be in the gym of a high school. As there is no one in the school during the summer, the accommodation and also the school yard will be just for us. There will be mattresses provided. And also town hall will provide the food for us and it will be cooked by the volunteers in the basic camping kitchen in the school yard. There are showers and bathrooms for girls and boys separately. Summer sleeping bag and lower sheets will be needed!
This project will include a one day only vegan food day agreed by volunteers for the promotion of environmental sustainable lifestyle.
El Saucejo is a town located 80 km away from Sevilla. You reach Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba or Malaga in a bit more than an hour. We advise you to book some extra days to do all these excursions. You will enjoy nice natural areas around and lively summer Spanish fiestas. Temperatures in July here are really high, so be prepared for hot summer. Village has 4500 inhabitants. Economic activity is based on agriculture but there are some steps forward to tourism, as it is a dwelling town from which you are able to reach the nicest spots of Andalucia. It is very well-known for the improvements taken on reduction of energy consumption. For instance, the whole town uses a special illumination system designed by a local citizen that helps to reduce light pollution.
Our local partner is the town hall of El Saucejo. De Amicitia collaborated with them also in previous years. The work of volunteers will be to paint city walls. And create murals and drawings according to common agreement on topic and global idea of intervention.
The co leader has to be an artist or a student of art. Spanish knowledge would be very useful. Please send us an art portfolio while you are applying.
De Amicitia wouldn’t be able to pay the travel costs for the co leader but we can reimburse the travel from Malaga airport to campside. We don’t ask any extra fee from the co leader.
