Volunteers

Beglika Fest is a space for learning, creating, self-knowledge and self-realization, fun and interaction in the purest form along with everything that surrounds us.

The preparation and implementation of Beglika Fest is a collaborative creation that requires the energy of people who believe they can communicate, create, change the world TOGETHER and for which nature is a place of learning.

The creation of the festival is divided in 3 stages – preparation, main event and completion.

Stage 1 – Preparation
During this stage, the volunteer’s core and heart develop. We construct the festival’s foundations, which include the main house, festival grounds and the connection between each other as volunteers. We learn to synchronise with each other and the surrounding environment, in order to work more efficiently as a team!
Volunteers take part in everything that is required in order to construct our festival.

Stage 2 – Main event
Here we move into a more advanced stage in the process of creation. Preparation is running full force and volunteers have found their place within the different groups. If you take part in this step, we will yet again learn more about each other. You are now part of the main process.

Stage 3 – Completion
This is the period after the festival, which is solely focused on cleaning.
Here we collect everything and put it in storage whilst leaving no rubbish behind.
The goal is to leave the environment where the festival took place untouched and completely cleaned. We need approximately 10-15 people, but “The more, the better”
