Work: Volunteers will mainly help in planned activities, supporting the press office, artistic direction, organizational set-up, info-points and more. They will participate in the everyday life of the Festival, attending the events and having free access to the backstage.
Accomodation and food: Volunteers will sleep in small apartments (4 people each) provided by the organization. The apartments are a dependence managed by Hilton Hotel in Giardini Naxos (neighborhood of Recanati), 15 mins far from Taormina by bus. They will cook by themselves, as the Organization will provide grocery shopping. Private WCs and shower with warm water are available in each apartment.
Location and leisure: There are three interesting and beautiful medieval villages in the surroundings of the farm: Castelmola, Savoca and the beautiful beach of Isola Bella. The Saracen village of Castelmola and the enchanting beach of Isola Bella are easily reachable by bus (check here: www.interbus.it ) or by feet in 30 mins. To get to Savoca, known for having been the set of the movie The Godfather, you have to take a bus from Taormina Bus Terminal.
Project hosted by: Taobuk, combining literature with art, music and theatre, has always embraced strong social themes, believing that literature can not retreat into its “ivory tower” and choosing a proper theme for each edition. Taobuk 2017, from June 24 to 28, will be dedicated to the theme Fathers and sons, the process of imparting values and identities among the generations. Taobuk recovers the traditional fate of intellectual gathering that Taormina has played over the centuries, enjoying the status of crossroads of identity, narratives, cultures, Muse and favorite destination of great writers, from Oscar Wilde to David Herbert Lawrence, from Tennessee Williams to Truman Capote.
