This workcamp will give you an opportunity to get involved in activities at “Fontaine-du-bac”, one of Clermont-Ferrand’s neighbourhoods. We offer you the opportunity to develop your artistic talents!
For several years now the city of Clermont-Ferrand has elaborated participative projects in cooperation with the local population. Last summer, a first workcamp was welcomed in this neighbourhood to create a large graffiti mural on the wall of the football stadium. It is very much appreciated by the locals.
The animators of the Community Centre would like to welcome new volunteers to create murals with graffiti paint or mosaic. There is a lot of supports in the neighbourhood that could be painted or decorated: buildings housing, electricity transformers, benches, stairs, garage walls, etc. The final project will be chosen with the inhabitants during this spring. A camp leader will be at your side to teach you spray painting or mosaic techniques.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will be accommodated at the two-star campsite “Les Sablons” in Pont-du-Chateau (with a swimming pool and activities), sharing two-person tents, boys and girls separately, and a collective tent for socializing. During your stay, you will be accompanied by two camp leaders recruited by Concordia. You will be staying with another international workcamp for teenagers. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of dishes with good products from the market and from local producers. Free WIFI at the campsite.
Locatie en vrije tijd
The urban area of Clermont-Ferrand is Auvergne's lively regional capital. It is located in an exceptional volcanic area, at the foot of the Puy de Dome volcano which summit can be accessed with a panoramic train. During your stay, you will be able to enjoy the town's summery energy (concerts, Sable Show festival, visiting the historic town centre, French National Day and fireworks) and the countryside which is located right on its doorstep (hiking over the volcanoes, swimming in the lakes, etc.). It will be a rich and varied trip.
