We are now looking for two volunteers for EVS duration Sept. 2017 – Aug. 2018. The deadline for applications (CV and cover letter): April 15th. For these two particular EVS positions the main creative activities differ. One is photo and/or video documentation of all the events and activities we do. The volunteer will be responsible also for uploading the photos on our web gallery. We do not provide the camera or the PC for editing, so the volunteer should bring his own. The second creative position is writing reviews and reports from the events.
The potential volunteers will be involved in almost all the processes related to everyday operation of independent cultural venue. He/She will sell tickets before the events, distribute posters and flyers in the city (2 times per month), do a guest service (take care of the foreign artists), prepare guest room or catering for artists, help us with administration, office work, help at the café.
Other activities depends on mutual discussion and on the individual preferences, background and profile of the volunteer. He/she can develop his own project (activity) which makes sense and fits with our programme (for example workshop, exhibition, blog, movie, etc). In short we are looking for a persons with creative approach who will actively look for new tasks and activities.
The structure of activities depends on a season – The peak of the events is in the autumn (dance festivals, music festivals, a lot of different theatre performances and so). We also give the volunteers opportunity to take part in other projects, workshops and organizations if they are interested.
