Bear charisma vibrations
Description: Velebit Association Kuterevo aims at preservation of natural and cultural heritage in the village and region around. For 16 years, the organization is running the Refuge for bears and people. The Refuge provides opportunity for learning about and from bears and nature. Workcampswith topic of Bear Art became our tradition. The goal is to make the refuge even more beautiful but also to indirectly spread messages through art.
Type of Work: The volunteers will work on creating new panels, info signs, repairing old ones, possibly painting a mural on the volunteer's house or somewhere else around the refuge. We try to implement old, recycled materials into the art, so apart of paint and some materials, you will be using "garbage", old wood, shingles, bottle caps, whatever we can re-use. Recycle, reuse and up-cycle as much as possible.
Study Theme: Bears, biology, mythology, ecology. Living simply and with nature, possibly learning what is permaculture.
Accommodation: The volunteers will live in a wooden house, with a common sleeping room. Mattresses will be provided but it is necessary to bring a good sleeping bag. There will be compost toilets with sawdust, solar-heated showers. Volunteers will cook together for themselves, vegan and vegetarian food. Very limited Internet in order to connect with nature and each others.
Requirements: Have artistic talent, as this camp is focused on art and creativity. Be ready to live in simple conditions.
