Are you a carpenter, student, creator of good vibes, cook, future psychiatrist, entrepreneur, savvy scientists, trumpet virtuoze and feel like applying your skills and knowledge for a sustainable world? You just might be a DORPeling
Who we’re looking for
We need people who like to talk about innovation and sustainability, but more than anything we’re looking for people who really get excited about rolling up their sleeves. If you’re good at making stuff, a real go-getter or a very clever thinker and want to contribute to a more sustainable world, we’re looking for you.
And when you’re a superb trumpet player or someone who can coördinate a group with his or her communication skills, you’re welcome too. DORP can use all kind of people. Heard enough? Sign up here.
What you’re going to do
At DORP, you’ll be working with 150 other students, artists and experts on projects that have been submitted by entrepreneurs and organizations. A week prior to the festival Welcome to The Village you and the interdisciplinary team you’re in, will be thinking of, develop and build these projects, so you can field test them directly at the festival.
We’ll help you innovate on the spot by providing you with coaching, workshops and co-creation sessions to fill your head with new ideas and insights. Also, you’ll have a well-equipped work place at your disposal, with power tools and 3D-printers to start prototyping and develop your concepts
When you’ve singned up
On May 16th, we’ll let you know if you’re selected to participate in DORP 2018. We’ll meet for the first time on our Kickoff at Saturday, June 16th. Here, the entrepreneurs will present their projects and we’ll form the teams that are going to tackle those challenges. This will be the team you’ll be working with at DORP on recreation area De groene Ster, from July 13th till 22nd.
After a week of working hard, your ideas will be field tested at Welcome to The Village and you’ll have plenty of time to also enjoy the festival. On Sunday, we’ll say our goodbyes. When the dust of this experience has settled, we want to see you one more time at the DORP follow-up in October, to catch up and here from the entrepreneurs where they stand, two months after DORP.
Sleeping and eating
We’ve got our very own DORP camping, but you do need to bring your own tent and sleeping gear. Breakfast, lunch and diner will be taking care of and we’ll even throw in some snacks. Coffee, tea and lemonade? Got it. In our DORPsCAFE, you can even buy a beer or wine, for a small price.
