European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016 Volunteering Project

The European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016 Volunteering project was carried out during the celebration of ECoC in 2016.

The main goal of the project was to promote and develop voluntary service in culture, and provide an efficient and competent information service during events of ECoC in Wrocław. Volunteers took care of guests arriving in Wrocław, VIPs and journalists. Thanks to the commitment of more than 2,050 volunteers the celebration of the European Capital of Culture in Wrocław was a great success. We have created a broad range of civic and social engagement by providing development opportunities, contact with international communities, a number of interesting tasks and many unique experiences.

The project has involved different social groups like seniors, people with disabilities, excluded people, formal and informal groups by including them as a part of the volunteers team carrying out various tasks. The project offered the opportunity to develop contact with international community, a number of interesting tasks and the possibilities to develop skills and create new ones among the volunteers.

The project was co-organized by the IMPART 2016 Festival Office and co-funded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
