Description de la mission :

Kaunas Artists' House is a centre for contemporary culture. We carry out cultural activities, present contemporary art, especially emerging artists, organize and present cultural programs to the public. KAH produces cultural and artistic content as well as coordinates city cultural information through Cultural Infocenter. While KAH has been operating for half a century and is one of the oldest cultural institution in Kaunas, the team of KAH consists of a group of young professionals, working on progressive ideas and principles of equality, inclusion and tolerance. Since 2017 the following platforms are consistently created and developed at KAH: artistic residencies, educational programs and the Cultural Infocenter. Next to that, we carry different projects raging from exhibitions and concerts to cultural activities with specific communities (LGBTQ+, people with certain dissabilities, refugees, etc.).

Tâches du volontaire :

Volunteer joins the activities that are being carried out in KAH depending on their abilities and interests. These activities range from practical preparation for events to co-curating projects.
A part of the tasks will be practical: copying material for workshops, organizing supplies, preparing and decorating spaces.
Another part of tasks is communicative: greeting guests that come to events, representing KAH to foreign guests (live and online), working together with local volunteers and helping coordinate events organized by partner organizations.
The third part of the tasks is more creative: depending on interests and abilities, a volunteer would be invited to take a bigger part in coordinating one or several of KAH projects or programs and/or organize and curate their own events that fit with KAH content.
The above being said, each volunteer’s interests and abilities are taken into consideration, so the third part of tasks can vary depending on a volunteer.
