Volunteering in an Open cultural platform

Participative & Creative // Culture Management & Cooperation

The staff members of “Die Bäckerei – Kulturbackstube” are looking for 1 EVS-volunteer who wants to support their team in cultural and artistic work starting in early September 2018 until end of August 2019, for 12 months. Apply for 1 year EVS project in Innsbruck, Austria!

Descripción de la organización de acogida:

The cultural platform “Die Bäckerei – Kulturbackstube” has been hosting EVS volunteers since 2012. This year we are hosting one volunteer starting September 2018.

The “Bäckerei” (German word for bakery) is an old former bakery, which was abandoned for 10 years, until 2010 a motivated bunch of people put life back into the building. It has now become an experimental platform for cultural exchange in Innsbruck and beyond. It has established wide cultural network and provides possibility to experiment, create and develop new ideas, events and projects. There is no specific target group in “Die Bäckerei – Kulturbackstube”, we have a wide range of activities for various interest groups. Partly our program and projects are developed by us, partly it is created by our audience. For example, if someone wants to give weekly Yoga classes or a workshop, or wants to organize a concert or an exhibition, this is possible.

Die Bäckerei is a place of experimenting, offering an easy-to-use frame to try out things in the location of 1000m2 space. It should not be just a venue to rent for events. The goal is to support people in putting their ideas into reality by guiding them through the process and arranging events together. Moreover the idea is to mix groups of interests, genres and different ages (also in double-events) to create a situation, which is not very common but very interesting in the sense of communication, exchange and also networking.

The aim is to get the people to participate and take part in events, workshops, concerts etc., in order to spread the idea of open arts and culture. In this year 2018 we are actively collaborating with various institutions in the city, in order to create new event concepts to raise awareness on important topics in society (like migration, politics, sustainable living, activating society, education etc.).

We are looking for one EVS volunteer who is motivated to support our organization in the field of open cultural and artistic work and is interested in social media and communication for one year, starting September 2018.


“Die Bäckerei – Kulturbackstube” is situated in the centre of Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol, with 130.000 inhabitants. Bäckerei is located within a 10 minutes walking distance from the main train station. The volunteer will live in the centre of the town, in a shared flat. Innsbruck has several cultural venues, libraries, galleries, historic monuments and numerous bars, outdoor and indoor recreational facilities and mountains all around. Furthermore Innsbruck is very close to Switzerland, Germany and Italy. The community around our centre is quite active and plays a main role in the cultural scene of the city. Most of the projects developed here are run by dedicated and highly motivated local people. This makes Die Bäckerei-Kulturbackstube the main venue in Innsbruck where cultural production and diversity is created by locals.
