This year it will be the first time that Donkey Caravan will accept 16-17 years old volunteers with the support or our participants from the previous years. First, the participants will prepare a street theatre with a clear environmental message, adding their own creative performances (dance, music, joggling, and singing). They will be sharing ideas and creating a really spectacular performance in each village they visit along the way. The message that the participants will be spreading will be based on environmentalism and creativity. When the performance is ready, we shall head off on our caravan with the donkeys! We will stop at each village and perform our shows and workshops which we have prepared. Then the local people can share their thoughts of environmentalism, donkeys and the workshops we are doing.
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
The accommodation will be in the small tents (places for 1 or 2) to share within participants, in the Camping Monte Holiday. It is a big complex with a toilet area, hot water, washing machines, recreation areas, swimming pool and wi-fi connection in the cafeteria. During the shows, there will be basic accommodation provided in the towns of Sierra Norte. Food expenses are covered by De Amicitia (5 euros per day). The volunteers are meant to cook their meals. This project will include one day only vegan food day for the promotion of an environmentally sustainable lifestyle
TRAINING DURING THE PROJECT
The volunteers will have an opportunity to live together in a group of people of different nationalities, so they can learn many interesting things from each other and raise their level of cultural tolerance. Also, it´s a great experience of working in a team, especially an international one. It´s a project where you can show all your talents and creativity.
We are looking for young people who have different good artistic skills, e.g. musicians, singers, dancers, circus performers, etc. If you have photo or video making skills, it will be a plus. Motivation letter and skype interview needed. Please, indicate truly your skills in the motivation letter (send a short video). Also, we need people who like and know how to deal with animals, as we have donkeys who are the part of the show, they tour together with the group. Additionally, Spanish skills are very welcome.
