This project is a way to enjoy an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while they are exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning.
The volunteers will take part in the production of a video documentary which will be focused on how Icelandic people live and survive in isolated rural areas. It will be a mix of landscape shots and interviews of local people in order to find out how they feel about living there and what they think about international volunteers coming to the village.
Another part of the project will be focused on the Auroras Borealis. During this time of the year it is very easy to see and experience this amazing spectacular phenomenon. Volunteers will be involved in a Time-Lapse project in order to catch the lights and have a common visual arts project.
The third part of this project will concentrate on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening a different country will cook for the rest of the group and will be in charge of presenting their origin country and culture in a non formal way. It could be a presentation, games, theater or however you would like to show it.
Project dates: March 22 - April 3, 2013
Location: The village of Raufarhöfn is the community that lies farthest north in Iceland. It is located in the eastern part of Melrakkasletta close to the Arctic Circle. Most of the people here earn their living from fishing and fish processing. The harbor is very beautiful and partly shaped by nature itself. A wide and untouched open area surrounds the village with a lot of birds and varied vegetation. The coastline with its inlets and creeks is filled with driftwood and reaches out into the Arctic Sea.
