Help with renovation of the independent cultural center

22. - 24.3.2019

The independent project of the Farmstudio Cultural Center is located in the Kokořínsko Protected Landscape Area in the unique premises of a former farmhouse from the early 19th century. It has not been used and therefore decayed for many years. Farmstudio members are doing their best to bring it back to life, even with the help of volunteers. Under the hands of skilled people, it slowly but surely turns to the center of culture, just a few kilometers from Prague.

WHAT WILL WE DO DURING THE WEEKEND?

We will do different types of reconstruction work: landscaping, we will try masonry work, renovation, painting or grinding. Since the start of full operation of the cultural center depends on completion of the site preparation, our help at this point is crucial. Due to the character of the weekend, we are looking for physically strong volunteers who can do even harder work. 🙂

APPLY HERE

There are several attractions in Farmstudio and nearby that we can explore during work and leisure time. You can enjoy a spiritual relaxation on site with a unique atmosphere of Kokořínsko Protected Landscape Area. In the evening we can sit by the campfire and prepare some delicious dinner. In the free time, we can also go to nature, visit nearby castle, or attend a thematic photography workshop. There is also a gallery of contemporary art and a confectioner’s with its own art gallery in the village.
