Volunteers will work to increase cultural interaction in the organizations and activities of the Classical Music and Motorcycle Festivals held every year in Eğirdir District of Isparta City in this workcamp. Classical Music and Motorcycle Festival are two separate festivals. This workcamp involves the dates of both festivals. Volunteers will have the opportunity of working in the organizations and activities of these two festivals.
Classical Music Festival is organized to ensure everyone to listen to music, meet with music, and live with music. Everything is done and will be done on a voluntary basis at the festival. The difference from the other similar festivals currently organized in our country is the fact that the festival is completely based on voluntary basis. There is no organization company, no press office, no publicity committee, and no advertising agency. All works are carried out with the support of Egirdir Municipality, national-international volunteers and individual contributions. Motorcycle Festival is a festival held that motorcycle drivers join with their motorcycles coming from all around Turkey every year. In this festival, there are conversations about the philosophical background of motorcycle riding, motorcycle acrobatics shows, competitions, social events, workshops and tours are arranged.
Volunteers will be accommodated in the guesthouses of the municipality. They will have breakfast and dinner in the dinner hall of the guesthouse and receive food packet for lunch. Meals will be prepared by the chef of the guesthouse.
Eğirdir is known for a special kind of an apple grown in the region and its location among many lakes of various sizes. It is also in Isparta City which is very close to Salda Lake known for its resemblance to Maldives. Volunteers will participate in activities of both of the festivals, enjoy the festivals, have a chance to visit cultural and natural beauties of Egirdir and Isparta.
We are organizing this workcamp in cooperation with Isparta-Eğirdir Municipality, and this year will be the third time of our cooperation. For more information about our partner, please visit: http://www.egirdir.bel.tr/
