ON tour


Dates of the project: 17.04.2017. – 05.06.2017. (traveling days included)

Place of the project activities: Veliko Tarnovo and Varna (Bulgaria)

Partner countries: Greece, Italy, Latvia, Macedonia, Slovakia, Spain, Portugal

We are looking for 20 volunteers between the ages of 18-30, from 7 different countries, interested in culture and audiovisual arts in particular. This project will give the volunteers an iNsider’s look at the organization of several cultural events in the framework of the 14th IN THE PALACE International Short Film Festival.

IN THE PALACE is a festival that presents contemporary film art from Bulgaria, Europe and the whole world and provides an exceptionally favorable environment and platform of expression for both young film artists and established professionals. After successfully concluding the first event in Sofia, the 14th edition of IN THE PALACE continues its tour around Bulgaria with two events in Veliko Tarnovo and Varna.

The volunteers, who will join us for these events, will be engaged in a wide range of activities related to the promotion of the events, preparation of the venues, communication via different social media platforms, welcoming and assisting the guests and participants, preparation of press releases, and creation of audiovisual materials about the events and the volunteering experience.

The volunteers will be divided into teams and will serve on a rotational basis so as to give everyone an opportunity to explore the different parts of the organization and implementation of an international cultural event.

This project has received funding from the Union Comission as part of the Erasmus + programme, so the festival provides accommodation and assistance for food and travel costs* for all the youngsters participating in the project.

* The amount of reimbursement for travel costs is fixed by the program and depends on the distance from the partner organization country to the venue of project activities, so the travel costs may be covered only partially if they exceed the fixed amount.
