Volunteer Opportunity posted by: CADIP
Posted on: October 24, 2013
The volunteers will both take part in photography sessions and workshops and help with fundraising for the Red Cross and the Salvation Army. This is the sixth year that series of International Photo marathons are organized! Our main objective is to deliver messages and draw the attention of the local population through pictures and photos made during the project. The coordinators will prepare different topics on which the participants will base their entries. The topics will be mostly related to intercultural understanding, peace & environment.
Participants need to bring their own digital cameras. The main work will be done taking photographs on the given issues. The best pictures will be selected for a final exhibit. The last part of the project will be putting up the exhibition. Volunteers shall be prepared for walking/cycling, flexible time schedule (early morning photo sessions, night photographing).
Apart from working on the photo marathon, volunteers will join the festive atmosphere during some days by handing out hot chocolate in the city centre as a way of fundraising for non-for-profit projects of the Icelandic Red Cross. We will help in the preparation by putting up the chocolate stations, decorating the tables, making the chocolate and taking it to the different stations around the city. At the end, we will assist in taking down the stations and leaving the areas clean. Volunteers will also work with the Salvation Army helping them with fundraising.
Volunteers with artistic skills, such as singing, juggling, playing music are encouraged to apply for this project as they will have the chance to perform during the chocolate hand-out and help to create a nice and friendly atmosphere.
Project dates: December 17 - December 26, 2013
Location: Reykjavik is a city full of energy, just waiting for you to experience it. Powered by heat from the earth below, with ever-changing weather sweeping across the landscape, its natural features are matched by the energy of its residents. Think of the qualities of a great city - fun, culture, nature, clean air - and Reykjavik has them in spades. All the advantages of a modern, forward-looking society are complemented by the beautiful natural setting.
In December you can see the Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) in Iceland. In the area within 100 km of Reykjavík, there are several spectacular waterfalls, geysers, impressive coastline and the well-known geothermal Blue Lagoon spa to visit.
