  • Description

    Description

    We are an international nonprofit association based in France. Over the last years it has been dedicated to the exploration and exploitation of using performing and visual arts in education & for social change! By other words, it has invited activist, artists, pedagogues and curious minds from all over the place to come together and be all about dialogue, sharing skills, learning from each other, creating and growing together as humans, listening and be.
    Now the time has come to gather once more to build the most exciting venue to be the headquarters not only for Nomads, but for everyone else belonging to its network.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Be, listen and talk.
    This are the first steps to be able to exchange experiences and socio-cultural perspectives. Amidst an international environment with people from difference backgrounds it will naturally happen.
    Sharing is and always be caring, and with globalisation being a constant guest, by the end of your visit you will probably have discovered new things, learned and taught unexpected things about all sort of topics and yourself.
    Conversations, food, music and a handful of strangers will set up the mood and then it's up to you how deep you want to jump in.

    Vous avez 25 ans ou moins et cherchez à vous engager dans une initiative artiviste ? Ca tombe bien, notre recherche 3 volontaires en service civique pour une durée de 8 mois, d’avril à octobre 2019.

    CONTEXTE

    Depuis 2014, notre a pour mission de promouvoir le dialogue social à travers les arts visuels et les arts du spectacle. Pour ce faire, l’association crée des ateliers, des résidences et des évènements culturels pluridisciplinaires, intergénérationnelles et multiculturelles à dimensions artistiques, pédagogiques et sociales.

    Au printemps 2017, les membres de notre se sont installés en Corrèze, pour y rénover une grange, dans l’idée d’y héberger des ateliers de rencontre entre artistes, pédagogues et activistes européens. En quelques mois, la communauté locale s’est mobilisée pour aider les volontaires internationaux à rénover et réinventer ce lieu : Homade.

    Homade est située au cœur du petit village de Brivezac, à 45km de Brive et Tulle, loin des opportunités d’échange, de formation et de rencontre urbaines. Par ailleurs, la commune est vieillissante : 48% de la population a plus de 60 ans.
