P60, a citizen's initiative, is the independent music and cultural center in Amstelveen (near Amsterdam airport). Opened in 2001, P60 measures 2090 m2 and consists of a concert hall with a capacity of 650 people (standing), a foyer, a cafe/restaurant and band rehearsal rooms. Each year around 50.000 people attent concerts and club nights and participate in talent development workshops/projects, all of which occur in the multidisciplinary building. With a team of eleven people, four European volunteers (European Voluntary Service) and more than 70 local volunteers, P60 is deeply rooted in the local community. P60 offers teh visitors a mix of established acts and new talent from different disciplines. This makes the venue a unique location in the region to discover music, culture and to develop talent. We also coordinate the annual city festival in september. For this festival we work together with all the local cultural organisations and schools.
P60 is member of Trans Europe Halles, the international network of independent cultural centers.
Within this network we exchange knowledge, culture, resources and projects. Aim is to improve social, communication and technical skills from participants.
Our target group is young adults (age 16-30).
We maximum host 4 European volunteers for long term EVS. They live together in the EVS house (private room, common facilities). All of them have a personal mentor (for wellbeing) and a task mentor (for learning skills). There is one administrative mentor for all EVS volunteers (for allowance and foodmoney). EVS volunteers are working the first three months together with our local volunteers with general tasks. The last 9 months they also have own projects (sounddesign/lightdesign/graphic design/bar/visual arts/exchange projects).
We take care for good communication with our sending partners. Also we promote the benefit of EVS in local papers, in our annual reports and in the regular meetings in the city hall about international projects.
This application is for 2 EVS volunteers. One for period 01-03-15 till 01-03-16 and the second for period 01-05-15 till 01-05-16.
