    Description

    Thanks for checking out our profile.
    We currently need people to help with the preparation for the summer and helping with concerts and events on weekends. We host 3 festivals this summer 14 -16 June Hard Rock Punk Festival, 19-21 July Anarcho Folk Punk Fest and 1-4 August Borderline Festival experimental electronic music and arts. You are welcome to help us.
    The doors of Atelier Wolimierz are open to those young in body or soul. Our aim is to promote culture and art, through the belief that such participation may in fact encourage social competence.
    We are working on rebuilding an old warehouse (mainly from recycled materials) into a modern place for people to live and work. We are very much influenced by work of Michael Reynolds and his earthships. We are setting up our walls with car tires. As much as 80% of building material utilized was of recycled origin. Today this space functions as a workshop, concert venue, and lively meeting place. A variety of artistic activity is promoted here: up-and- coming graffiti artists are allowed access to walls, and we teach construction methods involving tires, glass bottles, cans, and other societal waste, as we demonstrate an ecologically-friendly lifestyle. We attempt to create conditions allowing for innovative creation, always keeping in mind the future, our children’s future, and the future of our children’s children. Our most important activity is organizing concerts , events and festivals in the summer.

    Village Wolimierz in Izerski Mountain, in south – west Poland, closed to ski resort Świeradów Zdrój. 1800m from Czech Republic and 40km from Germany. Beautiful area with a lot of historical sites and pretty landscape.
    Artistic and ecological village Wolimierz, with it’s own street-theatre company, which runs a gallery, a pub, and rooms for events in the old train station. Musicians, craftsmen, and artists of all kinds, settled down in Wolimierz and the surrounding areas. From time to time, concerts, festivals, and workshops attract many people from all ages and liven up the whole village. Some families carry on ecological farming and sell their products and crafts...
