E+ internship in Brandenburg

Haus des Wandels – HdW, is a hausprojekt in Heinersdorf, a mini village in eastern Brandenburg, Germany. HdW is a building with many different rooms occupied by a variety of people, doing all kinds of cool stuff. There is a pottery workshop, a sewing workshop, a wood workshop, an atelier, a stage, and a huge garden all of which need constant maintenance, the visitors and users need to be navigated, the house itself needs a lot of care. I spent 3 months living in the house while writing my master thesis which was thematically connected to projects like the HdW and this helped me to better understand the topic. I’m still living here since i made many wonderful connections and want to spend more time in the community of HdW.

Erasmus Internship – Spain

I was doing the Erasmus+ internship in Barcelona, Spain. I started looking for internships directly searching for the studios or agencies I might like. Another way to search for an internship in the art field is on a web page called Domestika. It’s a great way to search for one that you might like in a specific area and in the field of your choice. I found the best way to directly search on google and write an email with your cv and portfolio.

Because many jobs require Spanish language, once you get to Spain you will find free classes for beginners of Spanish and Catalan language. But if you would really like to learn the language you should search online for schools with a intensive program. That is usually every day for three weeks for 3-6 hours a day.

I must say I had a great time doing this exchange and I would gladly recommend it. I would like to thank to Erasmus+ programme, International office at UNG for this opportunity!

“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence”.
                                                                                                          – Abigail Adams.

The above quote is a motivation for me which was achieved through the support by Erasmus+ scheme via my home institution.
It was a great privilege to partake in this learning and training phase. This learning was beyond professional growth and development but included social and psychological development.

I enjoyed and appreciate every bit of this training ( ranging from the host institution to relationships with workers and locals).

Erasmus in Barcelona/Room Search

The apartment/room search in Barcelona can be quite challenging. That’s why I decided to give you some tips on what I think is the easiest and most efficient way to find a room.

First of all you should know more or less the area you are going to do the Erasmus so you can find an apartment close to where you will study/work. It’s not crucial but it’s going to make your afternoons way easier in the future, especially in summer (the metros can be quite full) and with the crazy working schedule. However, even if you live in the ares that are further from the center, you will need max. 20-30mins with metro.

The second thing you should know is that the rooms are quite expensive. The usual price is between 350-500€ in the central areas. If you would like to find something cheaper 200-350€ you can search in the areas like Badalona or L’Hospitalet de Llobregat if you don’t mind the transportation you will need to do every day (up to 40mins).

The third step is to see the websites. Most of them are in Spanish, but you can find some of them also in English. I would recommend, that when you are going to write for the visit of the room you write in Spanish, because you will have more possibilities to get it. You need to have in mind that the demand to get a room is really high so you will need to visit it and choose it very fast (probably the same day or even at the end of the visit). Be prepared to have enough money to pay for 2 months rent in advance and the current one. The websites that I found very useful are:
1. Badi / : This app is a great way to find good roommates and has quite low prices in comparison to other apps/websites
2. Spot a home / : This website has some good offers and it’s basically an agency aimed to students. The website is in English as well as the workers speak in English too.
3. Idealista / : This one can be quite challenging because is one of the most used websites to find rooms and apartments, but with a bit of patience and a good Spanish you can get a great deal.
