To the north from Hron river
Being the main subject of the activities and duties of our organization, art and culture will be the core of our project, that will return us to the original traditions and values. We will build replica of old Slavic wooden settlement, learn traditional crafts and make cultural and historical performances. During the EVS project the volunteers will participate in several festivals, theatre performances and filmmaking, some of which they will be able to organize themselves.
Second main subject of our organization is protection of natural environment and development of regional tourism, that will make the locality more attractive to public.
The project will take place on ranch, that is located 2 km from the village of Železná Breznica, Slovakia. The ranch is located in the beautiful countryside amidst mountains. The ranch has been founded in 1997 and it consists of the main building, that was reconstructed and modernly equipped. We have 18 horses, 2 cats and a dog.
In the project “To the north from Hron river” we plan to host 2 volunteers long term – 12 months.
The volunteers activities are focused on improving skills in area of traditional crafts and technologies, protection of natural environment, artistic creation and organization of cultural events. The main activities are focused on preparation of grounds, scenes and props for historical movie production.
