L'SCI d'Hongria busca una persona creativa i proactiva per Open Doors, un projecte d'inclusió social de refugiades a través del disseny social i la comunicació audiovisual.
Organization:Útilapu Hálózat – SCI Hungary, Budapest
Dates: July, 2017 – July, 2018
About the project: Open Doors working group provides program for the unaccompanied minor refugees and asylum seekers arriving to Hungary by the tools of visual communication, community architecture and social design. The main goal of the project is to support the successful integration of young refugees, as well as raising awareness of their Hungarian peers using art and design as a tool to bridge cultural differences. Volunteers implementing the project have been working with the target group since January 2013 through activities organized on a weekly basis, complemented by intensive workshops, public events and international summer voluntary camps.
We are happy with a volunteer, who: is a creative person, not just because this project is about art, but also and mainly because of the target group the volunteer is going to work with: on one side they are forced migrants who experienced the tragedy of multiple-loss and on the other side they are teens (14-18 years old) who have many questions and expectations. To work with the target group of this project is exhaustive in a psychical, mental and psychic meaning. Even though the volunteer will never be left alone with the refugees, we need a person who is able to improvise, to find solutions quickly in front of unpredictable issues. The participant has to be very patient, tolerant and open minded. This person have to own good organizing skills, a positive and proactive attitude. We are looking for a volunteer able to work well individually and in team, flexible and reliable. And thevolunteer should have at least some prior experience with people in this age.
EVS volunteer will be involved in the general activities of Útilapu as well but mostly in the activities of Open Doors working group. She will participate in “support the social inclusion by art” process: communicating with minor refugees and asylum seekers in the Childcare Centre where they live (Fót, Hungary) and in the organization venues.
