Impulse Centre Holdenweid (Hölstein BL)
Description: The Holdenweid is an interdisciplinary impulse centre for a wide range of activities in the fields of culture, life design/social affairs, environmental development and research and regards itself as a source of inspiration for innovative approaches, new formats and offers. It should be a place of retreat and a place of inspiration for individuals, groups and companies - as a place of culture, education, experience and research for the most diverse needs and demands, set in a very special ambience in the midst of the countryside.
Type of Work: We will renovate wardrobes, paint, wire non-hazardous electrical work, lay sanitary lines, masonry, furnish, glazing, demolition, construction, curtain sewing, do gardening work and other handicraft work. In short, we will do current renovation work.
Study Theme: On the day of arrival we will briefly present our project and then visit the buildings. During the tour we will talk about the rooms and explain their future purpose. In the course of time, especially during common activities (rebuilding, eating), we will talk a lot about our goals. Of course we hope to have a lively exchange with the volunteers, which will lead to the enrichment of all participants. This process will be supported by a wide group of project operators: teachers, therapists, actors, engineers and craftsmen.
