For the area of eurythmy you should have some eurythmy experience (e.g. as a former Waldorf student). For the participation in the choir you should have a basic knowledge of music. You should feel comfortable with working with sheet music, which ensures a common work basis. The project is designed for laypersons. Participants who apply for the orchestra have to send us an audition video/audio file (details concerning the registration process here). Students, who study music, singing or eurythmy are nevertheless invited to participate. Participants of CONNECT are aware that the project will be physically and mentally challenging.
At least one of the languages used during the project has to be spoken sufficiently (English or German).
Duration of participation
You can only participate if you commit to being present and active in the project for the whole timespan (12 July to 04 August 2019 for eurythmy and choir and 21 July to 04 August 2019 for the orchestra).

The organizer does not accept liability for any financial damages due to the withdrawal of the participant or applicant or due to the non-participation at the project caused by the faulty travel planning of the participant. Together with their confirmation every participant receives specific travel details.
