What kind of Volunteer can I be?

Depending on your availability, there are two types of volunteers:

  • Permanent Volunteer

Permanent Volunteers help us in various projects at the same time for short or long periods. They can do it remotely or benefit from free accommodation.

  • One-Time Volunteer

Helps us in one single event, activity, workshop and others.

Flexible Volunteer is like a “freelancer” volunteer who works on his/her own agenda. Can be working remotely monitoring our webpage, social media, design flyers for new events, editing videos and photographies, etc.


Which projects can you volunteer?

We have regular and irregular activities & projects that take place any time of the year, locally and internationally for short and long periods of time:

“Goal 5” Youth exchange

“Goal 5” is a youth exchange that will take place between 15 and 24 June 2020 in Hässleholm, Sweden.

The project is hosted by Proqvi and supported by its long term partners. Erasmus+ is a fantastic tool to work with young people on gender equality. It brings different cultures together to learn from each other. With “Goal 5”, we are bringing 40 participants, 32 young people and 8 group leaders, from Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine and Albania for a youth exchange of 10 days to raise awareness of and to promote gender equality among young people in an intercultural environment.

Equal responsibilities are shared by the partner organisations. Group leaders from 4 partner countries will facilitate the sessions with non-formal education and informal learning methods such as ice-breakers, energisers, plenary, discussions in small and big groups, role plays, interactive presentations, roundtable discussions, street actions, world café, etc. The working language of the project is English. A comfortable atmosphere will be created for participants without barriers to express oneself. Equal participation and active involvement will be promoted. The youth exchange is an entirely youth-driven project, organised by active young youth leaders and young people.

Several participants were actively involved in the drafting of the project, thus guaranteeing that the project offers high interest among the young people.

What do we hope to achieve

We believe that this youth exchange will have a very positive impact on the participants and the organisations. We will contribute to the learning experience of young people both in the sessions and the extracurricular activities. The greatest impact of the project will be on the intercultural learning of the participants.

Proqvi and partner organisations will provide an environment for intercultural learning, so that young people will have a wealth of knowledge and experience of each other. Thanks to this youth exchange, especially young people with fewer opportunities will be able to learn about new cultures.

The participants will get to know each other closely and break down stereotypes and prejudices especially about gender equality. Gender equality concerns both women and men and has a strong impact on their daily lives. However, young men are not involved enough for the activities.

This youth exchange aims to have 50-50% of participation of young males and females. The project will bring participants and locals together. “European Gender Equality Festival” will be organised with participants as well as local people. Thus, interaction with people will raise intercultural dialogue and learning between the project group and local people.
Young people will meet with other young people and NGO representatives. Poster presentations and open desks will promote cooperation between the organisations.

A panel will be organized with the local guests’ talk which will include local challenges that Sweden faces for Gender Equality.

Catarina César just joined proQvi

The Portuguese Filmmaker Catarina César is now a proQvi member determined to explore the future of storytelling and develop new and innovative projects related with the Audiovisual & Media Arts for all creatives from different nationalities and backgrounds’. She will join Project Pocket, which is design to help creatives to succeed in their career by offering guidance and tools to their projects, which can be related to art, cultural activities, media, start their own company, and more.

Catarina’s idea is to build a self-sustainable Co-Working Space + Pitching Forum for creatives to share their ideas and receive guidance for their projects.

Biography:

For the last five years, Catarina has travelled the world gathering stories and developing her expertise in scriptwriting and film production. After finishing her Masters in Audiovisual Production, she has worked in all fields from Film/TV development to post-production for short-films, tv shows, dramas, documentaries, features and film festivals. Her main goal is to bound art & business in a self-sustainable Co-Work environment for new artists and filmmakers to create great content together.

If we want to tell stories that reflect and shape our society we have to create a space where all types of people can work and grow.



About Project Pocket


Currently, we are consuming more content than ever. The world have changed the way we consume video, whilst museums, theatre and galleries have embraced technology and games to create new awe-inspiring experiences. While the audience evolves from viewer to user, there are also a lot of creatives being left behind, and great potential ideas that are not being heard.

Project Pocket tries to change that…

Everybody has a story or a project idea that can change the world but have no opportunities and tools to make it, which increases the numbers of poor mental health in this industry, unsuccessful careers, demoralization and stagnation.

And yet, all it takes for us to succeed as creatives is an opportunity:
– Opportunity to create great content,
– Enlarge our network and the freedom to continue creating in a safe self-sustainable environment.

Therefore, Project Pocket is meant to give voice to creative minds and open space for fresh ideas to become alive, by providing accommodation, tools and knowledge for artists to join in a team, exchange expertise and develop their own independent projects, in order to help minorities, tackle discrimination and fulfil the gap between education and employment.

” Nothing in this world is forever, so we must start to think of what are we leaving behind. “
