Activity coordinators: Felix and Dorotka

Polish Dorotka and Swedish Felix will be coordinating this years activities. They will plan and carry out all the games, activities and social events.

Dorotka has several years of dancing experience in different Latin dances and taught dance classes at the festival last year. She is studying holistic natural health and nutrition and she has been travelling and living on a high raw food diet since 2014. Together with her boyfriend she is in the midst of creating a permaculture garden and planning to build their own house using natural and recycled resources. Dorotka loves sunlight and will try to arrange a lot of the activities outdoor in the beautiful surroundings of the school. It is her second time at the festival and she will do everything she can to make sure everybody has a great time, no matter of their age, mood or physical capacity.

Felix worked at the festival as a kitchen volunteer and fun volunteer last year. He started his raw food journey a little over a year ago because of several years of declining health. Today he feels healthy, happy and energetic due to the diet change and lives in a small cabin outside Stockholm. Here he grows his own food like vegetables and herbs and spend a lot of time training both his body and mind with running, body weight training, yoga and meditation. He also does hiking and sleeping in hammocks. Felix has previously done a lot of different sports like soccer, ice hockey and Martial Arts, and at the festival he will help Dorotka organize all the social activities is very much looking forward to it.
