  • Description

    Description

    For 20 years the culture centre Rehlovice has been a unique place for intercultural experiences in the Czech Republic near the border to Germany, located in beautiful Bohemian landscape. The old farm is transformed to a space for art, inspiration, exchange and humanity. Lenka, the owner of the cultural centre is living in the old ex-farm and she is receiving help from one long-term volunteer from Germany every year. The place hosts groups of artists and different events like workshops, symposiums, concerts and vernissages. Therefore we need help around the old and charming houses, in the garden, and for the accomodation of guests. The things we need help with are mostly physical tasks like cleaning, getting firewood, helping in the garden, accomodate our guests and help in the kitchen. If you have experiences fixing things around the house that´s great for us as well.
    During May 2019 we will transform the old brewery halls into an exhibition hall, because we are having our 20th anniversary in June.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The centre is all about exchange and art! You will get to know very interesting people from different countries. We are also german - czech, so the cultural exchange is "on a daily basis". The capital Prague is only one hour by car too, Dresden in Germany 50 kilometers.

    Help

    Every day here is different and unique - we search for open people and "allrounders"! :) One day we clean the house, the other day we welcome intercultural groups and make evereyone feel at home, or we fix something around the house, ... and in the evenings we make a campfire. The place and the people who come here are very inspiring, the place is vibrating. There is the possibility to have a workshop with the smith Mira, who lives here. We are also open for your ideas in a creative sense, but in most of the cases we already have a lot of ideas, programs and workshops. If you want, you can create your own art here as well!

    Accommodation

    The accomodation will be in one of our fifty beds, in summer you can also sleep outside. We are no five star hotel, but we have good bathrooms and a kitchen. The centre is closed in Winter, but during Spring and Autumn, we keep our nice ovens warm. It is possible to cook your own food or get some salad from the garden. We cook and eat together. It´s no problem if you´re vegeterian or vegan. You can wash your clothes here as well.

    What else ...

    We are looking forward to meet new and active people! The more you give to the centre, the more the centre will give you back.
    In your free time you can travel to the city Usti nad Labem, or go hiking in the bohemian uplands. The memorial Terezin is 30 kilomteres away. You can travel with buses or by train. Visiting Prague is very nice as well.
