The aim of the workcamp is to achieve an exchange between the inhabitants of San Siro and the international volunteers group to create the possibility of learning experiences for both.

WORK: The festival was born to promote melting pot, social inclusion and anti-racism, the housing right for all, and the improving of cultural and social conditions. The international volunteers group will help the inhabitants, the local volunteers and the association's partners to realize the event. Especially the volunteers will help to propose ideas, organize and manage the educational activities for youngsters. Children and kids of that neighborhood often live in socio-economic disadvantages and during summer, with schools closed, they have few opportunities to participate in community activities. The international volunteers will be always side by side with local volunteers of the "Banda dei Pirati Project" with experience in previous festival editions.
PARTNER: The host association “Aps Yard" was founded in 2001 and supports projects about many different focus areas: anti-racism, sociability, cultures, territories, active citizenship, human rights, reuse and recycle, mutual aid, non-formal education with young people and children.

ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: Volunteers will be hosted at the “Space of Mutual Aid”, a community squat that hosts a lot of social projects and the co-housing of tens of families from all over the world. Here there is one large apartment (130 square meters) entirely dedicated to the volunteers without distinction between males and females. There will be hot water in the bathroom. You can use the Wi-Fi in the building, but not in the room. The food will be prepared together by the volunteers and you can also eat vegetarian.
