Yes We Camp is an association based in Marseille and Paris in France, born in 2013 during the European capital of culture. The particularity of our association, itís that we have more than 10 differents professions among the 90 salaries, who compose actually Yes We Camp. We are architect, cooker, artist, constructor, graphist, urbanist, manager, communicant, landscaper and so on. What we try to do is to give a new dynamic in vacant spaces without life, we believe that shared spaces can exist by using the best tool the society get : collective capacities. Since 7 years, we have temporarily occupy more than 10 spaces in France (from a few days, to several years), wastelands, gardens, former hospital.
Our goal by inviting helpX to join our project is for us to meet new people, new cultures and exchange about our professions.

Foresta project, Marseille
Foresta is a 16 acres park located within the northern neighbourhoods of Marseille. It's a place with an incredible view : the sea, the small villages still there, the hills. For three years we've been working on improving this place, with the inhabitants, to make it more practicable, enjoyable and available for people from the neighbourhood. We met, discussed, walked and organized events to learn how to get to know each other and understand the area. Many stories and great biodiversity developed there.

Periods : Foresta can host HelpX in June and July 2020

During your stay, this is what we can offer :
