The Silo Youth Project - Build the New Cultural La
Description: The Silo Youth Project is set in the industrial part of Struer Harbor. close to the Fjord and beautiful nature. The core mission is to create a broad organization where the Youths can do what they love, pursue their passion, inspire each other, exchange their ideas, and embark on new initiatives. Our goal is to convert the old industrial silo to an urban cultural venue where you can experience music, dance, theatre, art, workshops and a whole lot more.The work camp will be centred around setting up and building temporary structures for the Silo Youth Project and festival ground at the harbour.Struer - The City of Sound is a small town with about 10,000 inhabitants. The local society is built on a strong philosophy working around sound, innovation and technology. Sound became an important part of the citys DNA due to the large impact from the audio industry, which arose from the establishment of Bang and amp; Olufsen in 1925.The silo project is non-profit and is organized by a local youth organization, with backing from Struer Municipality and Struer Library. We have a broad backing of creative youths, residing in or around Struer or locals who have moved to the major cities who are returning to participate in the Silo Project.With this project, you will take part in converting an old abandoned silo into the new creative landmark for Struer.
Type of Work: At the Work Camp, you will be building, designing and decorating the youth environment/ festival in collaboration with other volunteers, backed by local designers and architects.Building is hard work, but incredibly fun and rewarding. The tasks will vary from day to day, but mainly manual work to prepare the framework for the silo. Well be assembling pre-built structures, pitching big top tents, setting up walls and preparing an event/festival for all the fabulous youngsters in the local society.If you are into creative work or have a keen sense for branding you can take part in creating the visual identity for the silo as well. We need to build and design the brand, so it is appealing to our demographic, we also need to decorate and style the interior and exterior so that it underlines the rough industrial silo parts with a creative and young vibe.However, you will have free time during the camp where you can enjoy the music and cozy atmosphere, meet the locals and enjoy the nature.
Accommodation: Sleeping facilities:We will have made all the sleeping arrangements before you arrive in Struer. We will set you up a local school where you will be living in 2 people dorm rooms. However as the weather will hopefully be much sunny and dry, you will also have the possibility to set up a tent outdoors. All you need to bring is a sleeping back and an inflatable mattress.Kitchen bathroom facilities:You and the other participants are responsible for making your own breakfast throughout the Work Camp. However, all expenses are covered by the camp host. There is a local supermarket close to where you live and there will be a kitchen where you can cook.You will have lunch and dinner during the days of constructing, and during the festival, you will receive two mealdrink vouchers each day, that you can use as you wish. In other words, there will be no extra expenses related to meals, unless you are in the mood for snacks, which you will have to pay for yourself. Vegetarian food will be available.
Requirements: Unfortunately, we cannot take participants with disabilities due to safety risk working at the harbor side.
Approximate Location: The camp is located in a cozy local area with beach and forest, so there is plenty of room for a lot of fun outdoor activities. The camp hosts would like to lend the groups some bikes so that you can all enjoy the lovely area together.
