Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

Accommodation: volunteers will be placed in a flat close to the working place. Most probably volunteers will have a roommate. Food: volunteers will receive the amount of 40.000 HUF for food every month along with the pocket money (in cash or on a bank account opened for the project, as the volunteer prefers). Transport: as the flat will be close to the working place, volunteers will most probably get bikes for transportation. Transport to any activities further will be reimbursed.


Training during the project

After the volunteers' arrival, there will be an orientation day organized so that they can get familiar with the surroundings and most important places. Volunteers must participate in the two trainings organized by the Hungarian National Agency (on-arrival and mid-term). Volunteers will also be welcome on trainings and workshops organized by and to the colleagues of the Gallery, connected to their work.
