Donkey Caravan | ESDA-1021 | 2021-08-01 - 2021-08-16 | ART,ENVI | Age: 18 - 99


This project is done with De Amicitia funds and therefore we are the local partner. However the town where the project starts is a rural town called Gargantilla del Lozoya.

Work: Donkey Caravan is a special artistic project based on creating an act. First the participants will prepare a street theatre with clear environmental message, adding their own creative performances (dance, music, joggling, and singing). They will be sharing ideas and creating a really spectacular performance in each village they visit along the way. The message that the participants will be spreading will be based on environmentalism and creativity. After which, we shall head off on our caravan with our donkeys! We will stop at each village and perform our shows and workshops which we have prepared. The local people can then share their thoughts of environmentalism, donkeys and the workshops we are doing. We hope we will stay in each village we perform in, with tents or sport centres, and meet lots of interesting people along the way, although the final agenda will not be known until few days before the camp starts, as we depend on local municipalities to support the performance or not. The video of past year’s Donkey Caravan can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMvzei42xFQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B30qOgR5UR8 http://www.dw.de/popups/popup_single_mediaplayer/0,,6606072_type_video_struct_10406_con tentId_6606073,00.html

Accomodation and food: The volunteers will stay in the volunteering home of De Amicitia in Gargantilla del Lozoya. This house is energetically self-suficient and rather basic in its equipment since it is being renovated. Therefore, the volunteers will sleep in small tents (1-2 people) and will have access to bathrooms with toilettes, showers and hot water and a kitchen in which they will be cooking for themselves. Mat and sleeping bag is required.
