Training and volunteers
1. Kulturforum Sud-Nord welcomes volunteers of any nationality, sex, age and educational background, provided they endorse the goals of the association and demonstrate competence for teamwork. (see: about us) Volunteers have the opportunity to meet with artists from all over the world, learn how to prepare exhibitions, workshops and conferences, and prepare publications that accompany them. We issue certificates of participation.
2. Kulturforum Sud-Nord is registered in the European Volunteer Service as a sending and coordinating association under the number 2012-DE-104
The link to our entry is: http://ec.europa.eu/youth/evs/aod/hei_form_en.cfm?EID=6002412567
The application procedure for sending volunteers to West Africa takes longer than within Europe, therefore patience is needed.
3. English Classes for artists, curators and writers have been offered in summer 2012 and will start again in autumn 2013.
