Mexico | Kinderen en kunst
Samen met 8 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 13 dagen naar een kinderen en kunstproject.
Het project duurt van 1 t/m 14 augustus.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van € 190.
Volunteers will help and support art workshops, help in the elaboration of plastic works arts and support in the sensitization to the population through expressions of art produced by children and teenagers with Cancer.
Food and accommodation will be provided during the workcamp.
The camp will be organized at Morelia city, a very beautiful place and the state capital of Michoacan. It’s a dynamic and beautiful city and an increasingly popular tourist destination, and rightly so: the colonial heart of the city is so well preserved that it was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991, and its cathedral is not just gorgeous, it’s inspirational. Morelia, founded in 1541, was one of the first Spanish cities in Nueva España. The first viceroy, Antonio de Mendoza, named it Valladolid after the Spanish city and he encouraged Spanish nobility to move here with their families. In 1828, after Nueva España had become the Republic of Mexico, the city was renamed Morelia in honor of local hero José María Morelos y Pavón, a key figure in Mexico’s independence.
