Description: Had Samran, workshops, art and music festival will be organized for the second year in April 2018. Four days workshops will be followed by a music festival on April 13th, the day of the Buddhist New Year. Thai, international and local volunteers will prepare the whole event. The DaLaa workcamp and its volunteers will be included in the bigger team and each one can take part at her/his own scale.

Type of Work: The 4-5 first days will be used to prepare the workshops, decorate the area and few building (stage, tepees, garbage, shops, toilets, kitchen, compost…) Then the next 4 days will have workshops and animation. Volunteers will organize/ join these workshops while other will continue the concert preparation for the big event on April 13th. We will make some daily meetings and organize teams for each task needed. So the work can be really various or specialize in one task (cooking, decoration, garbage, security, animation, a workshop you want to lead…) We need your full motivation and support On April 14th will be cleaning days and we will take 2 days holidays to relax together on 15-16.

Study Theme: Encouraging the community, near and far, to reconnect, learn, have fun and appreciate the Hat Samran natural environment. We believe this is a great opportunity for the local community to develop their own need, maintain the beauty of the village and invite international exchange to celebrate and share ideas. Through workshops, volunteering programs, art and music festivals we hope to highlight the unique, simple ways of Had Samran village.

Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep in tepees we will build close to the beach. You can also bring your tent or hammock if you prefer, a sleeping bag or a small mattress if you want to be more comfortable. There are basic toilets, showers and a kitchen that we will organize before the start. We have a chef used to cook for large amount of people and a team of volunteers will help him.

Language: • Language: English and Thai. We hope to have quite a big team of international volunteers and some Thai volunteers will be able to speak English but only very few people in the village can speak good English. We will teach you some basic Thai language during the start of your project. Non verbal communication will be as well essential.

Requirements: Volunteers should be able to handle spontaneous working environment and constant changes in the plans. The work may be demanding and you will not have much privacy. We hope to organize activities with the children and teenagers. To have responsibility for you, the people around and full involvement in community matters is a must.

Approximate Location: Had Samran village, Trang province, South Thailand
