Project and work:
Take up the torch of the previous international participants and continue the renovation of the House of Associations!
The work is continuing on the old and majestic bourgeois stone building in the municipality of Latresne (www.mairie-latresne.fr). You will continue on the momentum of the former building sites. With a rhythm of two workcamps per summer, the intercultural link that has been forged between the participants and the residents is very strong. And it is this link that is so important for Concordia.
Just like last year, you will remove the plaster from the associations’ house, an old bourgeois stone building. This time, the work will be done on the main entrance on the front side of the house. The participants will also renovate the ornamental mouldings of the entrance and the balustrades. Part of the work will take place on scaffolding. The participants of the August session will take care of re-plastering with a lime plaster tinted with natural pigments.
For several years, Concordia has been in partnership with the municipality of Latresne. Every year, international participants help to maintain the town's historical heritage, a cause in which the residents are also very involved. With a regular rhythm and workcamps that take place every year, the link between the residents and the participants is very strong.
