Filming the Alliance itself!

Alliance Conference & Meetings, Brussels, Belgium.

BrusselsStarting again from two different countries and by two different means of transport (car and airplane) Panagiotis and Vasilis met in a quiet corner of Brussels on the 2nd of September in the Youth Hostel Vincent Van Gogh. Last time they were together  was just after the filming road trip, from the Netherlands to Athens. Over the dinner table once again and with the happiness of all our travels floating around we started discussing about the filming of this part of our trip.

So first of all this part of the trip of ours it was not a workcamp. But what we are doing in Brussels if there is not a workcamp? Well the reason is that here we were going to meet all these people that they are involved in organizing and realization of all the workcamps and a common strategy around them. All the days we were working and filming with members of the “Alliance of European Voluntary Service Organizations“. They were there working separated in working groups and committees carrying the organizational part of the Alliance network.

During the first day of our stay in the conference and meeting we were working hard in order to make a sneak peak preview of our filming so far. Therefore we edited some of the material and we present it the next day during the open event. The second day of our stay we filmed the open event and we got 3 interviews from people working in several committees.

The meeting have been hosted by JAVVA Belgium and will it was combined with the Final Event of the “Learning Bridges” project of the Alliance with South American partners.

There is just one more workcamp to film and finish our physical journey around Europe and start our digital one in the editing suite..

Stay tuned for the next workcamping experience at the Air Base Festival in Soesterberg, the Netherlands.
