Purpose of the project: We are looking for volunteers (20+ y.o.) to be a workcamp leader of an artistic workcamp. 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.
