Project name: ESC Volunteering at Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut

Hosting organisation: Deutsches Tanz Filminstitut

Sending organisation: “Common Sense” Youth Organisation

Purpose of the project: 

The Deutsches Tanz Filminstitut (TAFI) was founded in 1988 by Heide-Marie Härtel as a non-profit organisation to gather and archive videos of dance performances from all around Germany. It is now the largest dance archive in all of Europe. The institute frequently goes to film dance performances and award ceremonies in various parts of Germany, as well as most performances in Bremen. The other main activity of the institute is to digitalise and update the archive which has over 40000 video cassettes. The institute creates its own video productions, develops series of events and lectures, and cooperates with other cultural institutions on a project specific basis. If you want to find out more about your hosting organisation and the volunteering experience (and understand a little bit of German as well) check our video here that we made in cooperation with them.
