LET’S COLOR THE FORT | CONCF-280 | 2021-08-11 - 2021-08-25 | RENO | Age: 15 - 17


This is our first partnership with the town of Feyzin, which is keen to make its rich heritage known while mobilising young volunteers. The group will welcome young people from the town who will be the best ambassadors of the visits and activities that can be done around.

Work: In the heart of the Metropolis of Lyon, come and discover the Fort de Feyzin and bring your creative touch to the restoration of one of its rooms! Built at the end of the 19th century, the Fort was created for the defence of Lyon in the south. For several years now, it has been the subject of a restoration work supported by sponsorship. Today, the Fort is a very lively place, open to public visits. It hosts an equestrian centre and training courses (fire brigade, police officers, and humanitarian organisations). Every month, thanks to the rehabilitation of the military ovens, the Forts bakery offers tastings of bread, pizzas and pies... As part of the Forts restoration plan, you will participate in the renovation of a vaulted room that will host creative workshops. This will involve building and installing a wooden construction on the walls to create a modern and colourful decoration. This work will also help to improve the acoustics of the room. This work does not require any specific skills. It mainly involves manual work around the wood and painting. If you are creative and like teamwork, this project is for you!

Accomodation and food: You will be accommodated in a non-mixed tent, in the heart of the Fort de Feyzin, in a clearing with trees and grass. You will have access to the toilets and showers at the Fort. A kitchen will be available as well as a dining room (which can be used as a shelter in case of rain). Meals will be prepared collectively with a preference for local and seasonal products. Our leadercamps will help you to make common decisions so that everyone can express their opinion and participate actively in the project.

Location: FEYZIN

Location and Leisure: The town of Feyzin is located a few kilometres from the centre of Lyon, in the south of the conurbation. It has a population of around 10,000 inhabitants and has all the local services and conveniences. It is connected by public transports to the whole metropolis, which will allow you to discover many of its treasures (the Old Lyon, the Basilica of La Fourvière, the Parc de la Tête dOr, the Place Bellecour and the PresquIle). At the Fort, sport activities will be offered thanks to the on-site facilities.

Remember to bring gloves, clothes and shoes for work. For leisure activities, it is imperative to bring enclosed shoes. For accommodation, remember to bring your sleeping bag. Don t forget sun protection (hat, glasses, cream...) and a swimming costume. Friendly times will be planned with our leadercamps and according to your wishes. If you would like to share a bit of your culture (recipes, traditional stories, unusual objects, music...), don t hesitate to bring a piece of your country in your backpack. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
