RESIDENCY INTRODUCTION

: P2P workshops and help on renovations
7th TO 14th AUGUST 2022

Every summer and for a week, Mountain Makers NGO invites international Makers to the village of Manzat and its surroundings to come and carry out activities related to the makerspace but also to discover our region.

You'll have to:

  • Offer at least one workshop during the week to share your knowledge and experiences to other participants
  • Participate in workshops organized by other international participants
  • Contribute to the tasks of living together (cooking together, keeping common areas clean, etc.)

You will also be invited to help the local community with the ongoing renovations during the week.

We are looking for a maker who:

  • People thirsty for knowledge sharing,
  • Able to cooperate as a team with internationals having different languages
  • Not afraid of a spontaneous change of plan (due to the weather)
  • Ok to get dirty and dusty during renovations
  • Eager to share their culinary skills,

And especially who loves cheese and playing ping-pong!
