  • Description


    Our art center is located in Gümüşlük, a village at the Aegean coast, where artists and musicians from all over the world are gathering during summer season. The heart of the art center is an old stone church, surrounded by a huge garden and an outside restaurant/bar.

    All areas are spaces for concerts and artistic events. For starting the summer season there is a need of basic gardening help. Also artistic spirits to support the beauty of this powerful space are needed. Travelling musicians are always welcome.

    Also currently seeking web site developer to create a page encompassing our objectives, events, and general information.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a lot of volunteers coming to here both for short and long time. While here our guests stay in a 300 year old church and experience something quiet different. We heard from many of our volunteers that their stay in the church was something they will never forget. Also local and international artists would always put on something here be it a children's play or a concert or a jam session. Our volunteers here always have the opportunity to meet other musicians and artists from all ranges. As Gumusluk is an art center, it is never boring around here.

  • Help


    Volunteers can contribute to the project by
    gardening (general maintenance, caring of herb and flower garden, cactus, preparing and taking care of vegetable garden),
    - Any kind of creative energy like music, painting, sculpture or whatever passion that can be shared in the inspiring surroundings of Gümüşlük and art center,
    - Yoga teaching (with the option to give classes also to tourists and/or locals).
