It is an italian non-profit organization in the form of social co-operative. We are based in Lecco, a small city in the North of Italy between the Alps and Lake Como. Our main focus is the use and creation of music and arts as means to reach cultural change and social development. We manage a wide range of activities: we run a school of music, organize events, own a kindergarten, promote active citizenship and community development and we carry out research and implement interventions directed to the use of arts in the field of disability. We are a multidisciplinary team made of musicians, psychologists, teachers and technicians, and for our local and European projects we cooperate with a well-established network of institutions (e.g. universities, local public administrations)

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Travellers will be immersed in the local community and will be in contact with artists, musicians, teachers and a lot of children. They will have the opportunity learn from a variety of professionalities and from the local culture during an experience on the topics of arts and environment.
Volunteers will be involved in the project of the Summer Camp for children that we organize every year. The project includes play, recreation, music, artistic labs and educational activities on sustainability. Around 30 children take part into it every week, and volunteers will support the professional educators who manage the camp and will also have the opportunity to introduce their new suggestions and innovative and creative ideas. Volunteers will also be involved in wider projects and activities of community development and cultural change in the city.
Good knowledge of italian is an asset (B2 level or similar) to be able to interact with the childern and with the other educators.
If you want to apply for a workaway experience with us, it would be nice if you can send your resume/cv and some description of the ideas and proposals you would like to bring. We are looking for people who are interested in the field and eager to bring their own contribution and ideas. Please tell us:
Which activities would you like to realize to make the summer camp more innnovative and creative for the children and the community?
Which results would you like to obtain and which changes would you like to see happen?
What ideas would you implement if you can work in a community activating people through arts, education and environmental sustainability?
Depending on availability, travellers will be hosted by local families who live in the neighborhood or in a close b&b we collaborate with.
During the day, they will eat at the Summer Camp with other workers and with the children.
They will also have the chance to taste the local typical food served in the restaurant we own!
The Summer Camp will take place from the end of June to the beginning of August, therefore, we are looking for people during that period of the year.
It's mid summer in Italy, therefore there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy the time off … have a swim in our lake, go for a hike on the mountains, visit our beautiful landscapes or visit close cities as Milano or Bergamo. Lecco really is a strategic location to reach plenty of beautiful places. It is also well connected with buses and trains.
