Theatre Brama (The Gate Theatre) Goleniow is hoping to host EVS volunteers in August 2013. The project will take place in the city of Goleniow and will last 12 months. We are currently looking for volunteers (young adults between the ages of 18-30) who are interested in doing a year of volunteer service in the field of Art & Culture. The project will assist the volunteer by introducing them to the possibilities of working with an alternative theatre and educational association – including planning and administrative work, researching, developing and creating performances, organising events and festivals, promotion, technical assistance, teaching and performing. Theatre Brama travels frequently to perform in festivals and teach workshops, an ideal volunteer to our organisation must have a flexible schedule and enjoy travelling.
We are additionally open to giving the volunteer the opportunity to realise their own ideas. We encourage volunteers to envision new events and create their own original work, either with the help of the Theatre Brama ensemble or independently.
As we frequently work with our local community, the volunteer will be encouraged to become an active citizen in our society. It will be an informal and inter-cultural education experience which will help the volunteer expand their self awareness and knowledge about cultural heritage, history, values, languages, interpersonal skills and dealing with people from different backgrounds. We are currently interested in volunteers that would like to begin their year of service on August 1st.
