Wacken Foundation - Viva Con Agua Festival-Projektreise 2015
Since some years the Wacken Foundation cooperates with the water initiative Viva con Agua de St. Pauli (VcA) at the Wacken Open Air. VcA volunteers collect festival cups and volunteers of the Wacken Foundation pick up bottles and cans at the camp ground. The income is being shared between both non-profit organizations.
From 20/02 until 01/03/15 we travel to Uganda with VcA and a mixed group of artists and people involved in the festival scene. On-site we can have a look at what projects VcA can implement with the help of the revenues from deposits. A part of the journey is for example a visit of the water project in Lira. Here the project included the provision of water through water wells or rainwater tanks as well training courses about hygiene, maintenance and repair works.
There will also be no lack of art and music during the project trip. In the course of first Viva con Agua Uganda-Festival in Kampala, international artists will design a wall of the National Theatre. The whole travel group will also help to organize the final concert of the festival on 28/02/15.
A big thanks to VcA for the invitation to this exciting trip – The Wacken Foundation is happy to be a part of this great journey!
