Boski Fest is a four days event with concerts, workshops and discussions. It is not only a festival, but more of a gathering of positive people that want to share their good energy with the world. BRWI Foundation which is responsible for making this happen is a group of old friends who enjoy organizing such an event and take nothing but satisfaction in return. The entire project is non-profit. Almost every construction work on the festival is from recycled materials such as old advertising banners, wooden pallets, straw bales and so on. The festival is open for everyone who wants to share their time in peaceful environment with positive people around including children and elderly people, for whom the entrance is always free of charge (<10 and 60<).
WORK: During the two weeks the work will be divided into three parts.
The first one will include helping in preparations of the festival at the construction site with building and organizing the infrastructure (info point, canteen, eateries, workshop spaces and so on); decorating the area and helping the local people at their bungalows with some minor garden works or house repairs. We will encourage volunteers to come up with their ideas to make festival better and we try them to come true.
Second part is to help during the festival. This will include shifts at the bar, info point or kitchen, keeping the general tidiness at the festival area or solving technical or any other issues that might occur during the event.
The third part is to clean up the festival area, what includes dismantling the constructions, taking down the decorations and picking up the trash.
The festival is taking place at camping resort "Na Szlaku Brdy", situated at the outskirts of one of the biggest cities in central Poland - Bydgoszcz, about 10km from the centre of the city (you can get there by public transport from the city centre, the bus stop is 10-15 minutes by walk from the festival area).
The name of the resort is connected with the name of the biggest river that flow through Bydgoszcz - Brda, which is also flowing right next to the festival area. All of that surrounded by the beautiful forests, which makes the place a perfect spot to have some rest from urban life.
Of course it's not only about work. In your spare time you can go for a walk in the woods, hang out with your new friends around the campfire, take part in workshops or even rent a kayak. You can also take a bus that will take you directly to the city center to take a walk around Bydgoszcz, which is known for having a lot of historic buildings in the area of the Old Town.
TERMINAL: The nearest bus/train station and international airport is located directly in Bydgoszcz, however it's more likely for you to get a flight to Poznań, Gdańsk (both about 2-2,5h by car from Bydgoszcz) or Warsaw (4h).
The volunteers will get a place to sleep in one of the few summer houses or a common-room located at the festival area for the whole duration of the workcamp. There will be some mattresses, sheets and blankets available as well, although we advise you to take your own sleeping bags and mats with you.
There will be also a lot of space if anyone is willing to put a tent.
Each day some of the workcamp participants are going to be designated to prepare meals for everyone from the provided ingredients. Ingredients for vegetarian and vegan (if requested ) diet will be also available.
