  • Description

    Description

    We need help to maintain, where we work with performing arts, relating to the more-than-human (or "nature").
    Tasks involve gardening, painting, cooking, helping with performances and with guests, and other general maintenance.

    Christine, working with participatory performing arts and Artistic Director of a small production unit/theatre company and Brice a touring musician and composer.
    We live in the outstanding landscape of National Park Mols Bjerge, in a mini-village of appr. 20 inhabitants, 40km from Aarhus.
    I'm working with participatory performing arts and have built up a residency center here (with the help from also numerous fantastic Workawayers), and we need practical help with maintenance, daily tasks and gardening on the facilities. We prefer our volunteers to stay more than a few weeks - preferably some months. All our food, etc. is organic, and we rarely bring meat here - when we do, it is only local produce.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have had workawayers since 2015, more than 30 people have been here, and you can see the reviews which some of them left. No-one left with a bad atmosphere between us. We know that all our guests feel good here, and learn a lot of things - and we also from our volunteers! Quite a few of our volunteers come back, to volunteer again or as guests.
    We have many great plans for this place, but also need help to make some of them become reality. The motto is that this place is too fantastic to not share. This generousity, however, does not give us more hours a week than everybody else, so we've been very grateful for the last five years of collaborating with travellers via Work Away - it has made an enormous difference, and been a win-win.

  • Help

    Help

    Help with gardening, and painting/maintenance of houses. We of course make sure you have food, even if we do not cook together. Normally, however, we DO eat together most days, and take shifts with the cooking.

    We will take care that all tools, and products are in place, and give detailed info about what to be done, and be in contact daily to ensure a good atmosphere, good results and a nice stay.

    There is in some periods also the chance to help out with concrete productions taking place.
    A lot of languages can be trained: English, Danish, Italian - and French with Brice (CH is intermediate).
    Furthermore I speak German (rusty), and Russian (not very well), and Swedish.
    As for periods, also re families, it depends on availability of space - the artistic residencies is our 1st priority.
    We will not say "there's a bed" and then place you in a tent, unless you accept such conditions BEFORE you come here! (and - tents only in summer!)

    As we primarily have artists (and some researchers) in work retreats and residencies, we earn a lot less than what our expenses are, and by now survives on some public funding, and our personal pro-bono.
