Food, music & events at Gimle's cultural café
Start date: Aug 1, 2016,
End date: Mar 31, 2018
The EVS project takes place at Gimle, which is a music venue, cultural café and student house in Roskilde, Denmark. It is an individual EVS project, with five EVS volunteers from different European countries at the same time, and the project lasts for twelve months. Gimle presents approximately six different cultural events a week at our three stages, such as concerts, debates, workshops, and the cultural café is open six days a week. The activities are mainly run by a team of volunteers consisting of around 100 active volunteers, who are primarily youngsters between 18 and 25 years old, with help and advice from a small group of staff. Gimle’s volunteers run the café, do stagehand work, bartending at the concerts and so on. The EVS volunteer becomes part of this team both in relation to work and social activities, and the EVS volunteers thereby contributes with an intercultural dimension to Gimle and the cultural life in Roskilde. Through culture, food, music and events, the EVS volunteers are integrated in a cultural environment and young Europeans learn about one another’s cultures and traditions. Through the project the EVS volunteer has a great chance to develop social skills, language skills, experience with bartending and cooking, skills about organizing cultural events and learn how to run a café and music venue. The EVS volunteers are trained to be independent and flexible and will get different courses such as i.e. a hygiene course certificate. The skills and experiences gained in Gimle's EVS project can be helpful for the EVS volunteers' future job search. No specific skills are required, but an interest in cooking, bartending, music and events is a must.
