project description
For this particular EVS position, the main activity will be working in Nová synagóga and Plusminusnula: preparing, installing, guarding and packing the exhibitions and other events (concerts, discussions, festivals, etc).
Nová synagóga and Plusminusnula Gallery are exhibition spaces for contemporary art and other cultural activities with international dimension. There are quality curatorial programs and a clear profile that will combine the production of exhibitions and intellectual discourse with other local community activities.

Other activities depends on mutual discussion and on the individual preferences, background and profile of the volunteer. He/she can develop his own activity which fits with our programme. During 12 months spent in our organisation, the volunteer can gain unique experience for people who would like to continue working in the independent cultural field. We are looking for a person who will actively look for new tasks and activities if he will be idle.
