    Description

    𝐖𝐞𝐥𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫 !

    We are creating this beautiful project with the intention of leaving a good creative impact on Pai first, then the World.

    It is an open space in which everyone is welcome to work on their own projects and enjoy a good atmosphere. As a creative center we offer workshops to feed our creative souls, train our mind and work with our hands.

    ❖ Life goes from learning, and the more skills we have the more we can open our eyes ❖

    As well, we offer free evening events such as screening, talks, poetry slams, movie nights, live music... and much more.

    What value our space provides for the Pai community:
    ⬩ Creative workshops/getaways/activities for kids and adults, local and tourists.
    ⬩ A model for recycling/reusing/upcycling
    ⬩ A space for creatives to work and express
    ⬩ Organizing events indoors/outdoors that has a creative value
    ⬩ Fixing/building services
    ⬩ Inspiration to be creative

    As you can see "creativity" is our bread and butter here, we breathe creativity! because we believe it makes for a colorful and exciting world!

    Being a volunteer here means being part of the family. Anyone is welcome in this little art refuge, especially volunteers who can bring any kind of skill to contribute to the project ! But we need volunteers here to work independently, providing what our project needs in each moment. That is why we are a community, because everyone can leave their mark. Of course, as part of the crew you'll be able to learn a lot of new things, roam around town and get to know a lot of amazing people !

    As a volunteer we expect from you good energy, positivity and a creative understanding. Of course we live in harmony that means balance, relationship of peace&love, and connection between human beings.

    In our creative space, there are many things to do daily, weekly, monthly, but the main responsibilities are broken down into 6 key points:

    ◈ Social media:
    - Creating content/posting our events/workshops/some of our daily happenings:
    the main idea is to reactivate our social media presence, we have a good following base and seems like our social media is one of the coolest one here, in Pai. We want to create some content to be used for a few months down the road.

    ◈ The garden and back yard space:
    - Organizing/landscaping the garden, which is always flourishing and over growing because of the wonderful environment Pai provides for our green friends. We also have two cats, fish and they need foooood and love.

    ◈ Event organizing:
    - Before the pandemic restrictions, we hosted a few weekly evening creative events: Sketchy jam, Movie night and Last Night a DJ Saved My Life, we would like to come back and do Sketchy Jam & Movie night, as they are softer events, easier to manage & organize and don't involve alcohol or big gatherings (still a no-no here in Thailand for now).

    ◈ Regular cleaning & maintenance:
    - Our space attracts many people, but not only that, it attracts a lot of dirt & dust, so we need help keeping it nice and shiny. Also many things get broken every now and then. I'm pretty good at fixing everything but an extra hand can make magic.

    ◈ Assisting or leading workshops:
    - We also want to go back into providing creative workshops to kids and adults, and we learned from experience it's always fun when you have company, especially if we are handling large groups. It's also our way of giving back to you. You get to learn some really cool skills !

    ◈ Creative inputs:
    - The power of the hub is that it's constantly evolving, we are a big fan of people who can chip in with new ideas, or who are not afraid to shuffle things around to get different more interesting results. we believe in change. Its the only constant.

    ⟣ So how to volunteer here? ⟢

    Before answering, we want to thank you for reading this far and for considering us a place worthy of your volunteering time and energy.

    We accept volunteers for their capabilities to deliver in one or several of these key responsibilities mentioned above. So just contact us via the platform mentioning which of these points you resonate the most with. We are all ears for that. as we are all simultaneous sounds that, although different, are consistent.

    As for working hours, we require 5 hours a day, weekends ( Sat & Sun ) are off.
    Our start of the working day time will depend on what tasks we have for the day for examples, workshops are during the day, events are in evenings.
    But if we will need your help out of these agreed times we will inform you in advance.

    In return for your work and time we provide a cute accommodation & a shared kitchen to prepare your own food. We will show you around town, you can join us on our adventures and above all we will learn new things/skills together 😊

    ⟐ Important note: Sushi & Clém are currently doing full time jobs out of the project to get income in order to support the space. Their availability is very limited. So volunteers are expected to work most of the time independently with minimum supervision.
