Reshape urban places
Start date: Aug 1, 2014, End date: Nov 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project will take place in Brasov, Romania and it will involve 4 european volunteers(from France, Germany and Lithuania) for a period of 11 months, between 1.10.2014 and 31.08.2015. Reshape Urban Places is a project through which we want to increase awareness about traditions and handcrafts and bring them into the city life (for ex. rethinking the green parks with constructions made of wattle, flashmobs with gypsy dances, getting trees or buildings dressed by popular crocheted texture, community craft workshops, organize urban gardens with local vegetables etc.). Meanwhile we want that people in the city get the chance to participate at workshops in order to learn almost forgotten traditions or handcrafts. And not only participate, but be aware of the fact that traditions and local ways of living or preparing clothes or food or others can develop the community in a sustainable and more „fair” way.As for the craftsman we will provide different workshops so they can increase their competences for promoting best their crafts. The EVS volunteers will also have a huge contribution to finding ways and helping local craftsman or producers to promote themselves (through different events or activities, through establishing a partnership between them and urban „consumers” etc.). Our main aim is to increase awareness about such values and also tolerance between different people (for example a lot of crafts are still practiced by Rroma community or by people form rural or isolated communities). Nevertheless we want to enrich the people who are still practicing crafts with competences so they can promote them and their work. (for ex. we help them organise events or activities with people from urban areas in a sense of responsible tourism; we stimulate the relationship of urban people to the nature by organising gardening events in the town or at the people from rural areas etc.).
