Iceland Airwaves is an annual music event that started out in 1999 as a talent show for foreign record executives. Since then, Airwaves has grown and blossomed and is now an integral part of the cultural life in Reykjavík. The fruits of the festival's labour have been ripening and today many Icelandic artists such as Quarashi, Minus, Sigur Ros, Apparat Organ Quartet, Trabant, Leaves and others have made their way to the international music scene. Airwaves festival attracts approximately 2.000 people annually from abroad (more than half from the music industry). Visitors come to sample the fresh sounds, or in search of new talents, others seeking inspiration or simply on a quest for adventure on the Arctic Circle.

The volunteers will also create and put together a magazine promoting volunteer work, telling stories of volunteers' involvement and contribution to the environment of Iceland, and promoting the work of the project organisers.

In the beginning of the project, volunteers will receive an introduction about the tasks. Afterwards, we will choose a topic for the magazine. This is a great opportunity to get to know Reykjavik and the area around it in a different way. The group will take photos, create videos and conduct interviews with volunteers, local hosts and people living in the area. The outcome will be published in the magazine. The volunteers will also document the work in other projects running at the same time with a photo reportage. At the end of the project, we will prepare the final version of the magazine and publish it.

This project gives you the opportunity to spend an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning.
