Location: Izvoarele, Prahova, Romania
Period: 01/06/2017 – 31/05/2018
Deadline: 20 April 2017
Starting from June 2017 for one year we will host four volunteers from Italy, Spain, Czech Republic and Slovenia for one year. They will do sociological and anthropological research, they will gather information about crafts and arts in the area as well stories and food recipes. All these will be turned into video, photo and written material which we will use to promote the beautiful community of Izvoarele.
The fact that the people in the community are so hospitable made us think that this can be a great opportunity to collect local legends and pieces of history straight from the villagers and to turn them with the help of the international and local volunteers into tools of promoting the community. During this process, not only that the volunteers will have the chance of feeling and living local culture and getting the sense of multiculturalism but they will also get basic competencies in sociological researches and in creating and implementing promotional campaigns and promotional materials.
Curba de Cultură focuses on teenagers and youth development. Our mission is to use non-formal education as a complementary method to the formal educational system for young people. We want to create the premises for a better development of the young people and their more suited integration within their respective communities. We want to make young people aware that they actively belong to their local and national culture.
The volunteers will do sociological and anthropological research, they will gather information about crafts and arts in the area as well stories and food recipes. All these will be turned into video, photo and written material which we will use to promote the beautiful community of Izvoarele. They will also prepare a promotional campaign, take part in events, fairs and organize intercultural events.
