Muziekpublique is looking for non-Belgian volunteers

If you are searching for an international experience and you want to become a long term volunteer in Brussels, please keep reading!

Do you live in France, Germany, Holland or another European country? Are you under thirty, and would you like to join our team for a period of a year? If so, our European Solidarity Corps project may have been made for you.

The best way to bridge the gap between your studies and a job is to build up some relevant work experience through a meaningful voluntary project. Muziekpublique offers you the opportunity to get some practical experience so as to be better prepared for your future career. We are currently looking for two non-Belgian volunteers who would like to spend one year with Muziekpublique.

You will be a member of a small and dynamic team and will be totally immersed in music from across the world. You will learn how to work with people of very different origins and cultures. You will be involved in various aspects of the organization such as producing concerts, coordinating volunteers, and public relations, communication and artistic management.  You will receive a monthly food and accommodation allowance + pocket money. Your health insurance and the travel from and to your home country will also be covered by the Erasmus+ program. Find more information in English on the European Solidarity Corps website of the European Commission.

The organization

Muziekpublique is a non-profitable organization that defends and promotes world music, and most particularly those that are linked with acoustic, traditional, popular, folk, classical and jazz music. It focuses mainly on three axes:

  • The organization of hundreds of concerts and two festivals per year
  • An offer of more than fifty courses of traditional world music through the Academy
  • The management and booking of musicians and CD productions through the label
