PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Overseas is a non-profit association and NGO set up in Spilamberto (Modena) in 1971 to promote the global
development of communities in non-European countries through volunteering and international cooperation, support
for local grassroots organisations and groups, and long-distance solidarity for children and young people in need.
Overseas has always attached great importance to the assumption of lifestyles oriented towards sobriety of
consumption, solidarity “without borders” and has made recovery and reuse practices the main way to find economic
resources for the construction of its headquarters.
The work camp is an important stage in the redevelopment of the association’s headquarters and in the particular of
the “historic” building consisting of a shed of about 500 square meters in the 80’s used for agricultural use to house
tools and animal and then used to store donated goods for reuse and recycling. The shed is located in the land owned
by Association in the vicinity of another building, properly “Casa Overseas”, used as the headquarters and residence of
the Association where the participants of the work camp will be hosted; around the two buildings there is a large green
area, once used as an educational-experimental field, with garden, vegetable garden and arboretum of traditional
varieties.
The project consists in the reorganization of the spaces and activities that are already underway and in particular the
two Atelier workshops “Progetto Dono” and “Arte del Riuso” and in the enrichment of the structures located in the
external area in order to characterize the whole complex to the meeting and conviviality.
