Europe meets Ferrol is a project that seeks to boost the musical landscape of Ferrol while promoting the values of interculturality and participation in our city. At a social level we seek to open minds and awaken concerns in local youth. Through a wide range of activities owned or directly by our volunteer.

The project consists of a 10-month volunteering of a young woman from France. The participant will take part in different artistic and musical activities arriving, eventually, to organize some of them with the purpose of invigorating the cultural life of Ferrol.

Our work philosophy is based on co-management which means that the support and volunteer entity have a great weight when it comes to determining the details of the project. In this way we are able to keep them involved throughout the process. We have the collaboration of a support entity with extensive experience in international volunteer projects. At the local level we collaborate with several social and cultural entities of the city with which we develop joint initiatives in which the volunteer will be invited to participate.

"I think Ferrol is a very welcoming city and has a lot of potential as well, but unfortunately it is not very well known. I am looking forward to doing things to put the city on the map and allow other people, especially young people, to discover this beautiful city"
