Basic groups

Every morning at 8.30 there is a meeting in the basic groups: you will hear about changes and we will answer if you have any questions. It is a forum for conversations between participants and organisers. With this group we will also organise cleaning and other practical work in a cooperative way. This meeting can take from 10 minutes up to 30 minutes. A practical task for this group is to help prepare lunch and dinner.

Open stage

In the spirit of collaboration and the joy of music and drama we have an open stage in Västkustgården. There we can sing and play music together while watching the beautiful scenery of the fjord. This is the place to make new musical friends and to speak the language of music. Everything is possible at an open stage. There will also be three multicultural nights on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday in the Grundtvigsalen. Speak to Hampus Ericsson about what you want to do.
