długoterminowa12 Months of Volunteering at “Theater11” in Bremen, Germany
Do you love going to the theatre? Have you always dreamed to peek behind the curtain and see what the backstage life looks like? This is your chance – and you will even contribute and make the magic happen!
Theater 11 has existed as such since 2014, though the idea dates back to 2009. Back then, while she was studying, Kira Petrov wanted to open a arts school for everyone. In 2011, she opened the NGO called “Integration durch Kunst e.V.”. In 2014, Theater 11 started operating as a splinter group of the NGO, thus making Kira’s ambition a reality.
Theater 11 is a professional theatre group, which also teaches theatre to kids and young people, according to the standard of the Moscow University of Arts.
Many of the actors and actresses at the theatre have a migration background, which gives the theatre an inclusive theme. It produces plays in German, Russian and sometimes English.
Dates: October 2020 – September 2021
Location: Bremen, Germany
Other than the work at your hosting organisation, you will organise 2 bigger events for the community of Bremen together with the other 4 volunteers on this project. The topic, framework, audience – everything will be up to your team to decide! An incredible chance to make an impact on something that you are passionate about!
You will be accommodated in a flat in Bremen with three other ESC volunteers.
Bremen is a city in North-West Germany (around 500.000 inhabitants), not far from Hamburg and the North Sea coast. Bremen is a vibrant, multi-cultural city with a lot of young people and both a historical centre and newer areas of towns.
As an ESC volunteer, you will receive health insurance, monthly pocket money for food and other expenses (246€ + 150€). Travel costs will be reimbursed depending on the travel distance (normally between 180-360€). If you need a visa, the costs can be reimbursed as well and we will support you in the process with the embassy.
You will be supported by a Coordinator and a Mentor to help you get settled in your work place and the city of Bremen. You will also receive German language lessons of 2 hours per week.
