Intercultural Building Project (Zürich ZH)
Description: The youth centre “Dynamo” is an open place in Zurich and offers possibilities for young people to realize their own projects. Dynamo offers public work areas, meeting rooms and a stage for concerts. It is a place of encounter and is a great place for art interested people to network and develop new projects and ideas.
This summer we would like to support local, Zurich based social projects with helping them building things. Last year as an example we realized a sundeck for the cultural place "Parkplatz" in Zurich out of wood, metal and textiles. We always try to use leftover materials from our workshops or upcycle old things.
Type of Work: We will be working with various techniques such as woodworking, metalworking, and in general with up- and recycling. There are also the possibilities to include textile working or screen-printing into the project. If you already have a specific know-how in one of these techniques, it would be great! Or if you have other ideas or skills to contribute to the project in whatever way – please let us know.
Study Theme: Everything about the cultural centre “Dynamo” and the project will be presented to the volunteers at the beginning of the week.
Accommodation: The Dynamo provides: 1x mattress per person, 1x fitted sheet per person, washing machine is available; showers and rooms for volunteers are available and can be split by genders, 1x toilet in the residential, more toilets in the main building and working areas, internet available; volunteers are responsible for food shopping and cooking in the evening. For lunch we will have food from our restaurant. It is planned to have vegetarian and vegan diet.
Language: Work instructions in basic English will be provided and the camp coordinator will help translating further details to the volunteers. The local language is Swiss German.
