beginnings & an extended set up


set up 2015

Yesterday the Nomadic Village 2015 officially started. After a very demanding time of preparation we couldn't be more happy to settle in Valbruna in northern Italy at our friend Oscar's property. Oscar is restoring wooden ships in the middle of the mountains.

We travel with the biggest set up since the beginning of the project, and 14 meters on the road are a challenge; 17 kph uphill are quite a good zen practice. We hope that our latest addition, the Galeria Nowhere Caravan, will be filled with works by this year's artists during the next months, besides already being a great place to sit, talk and have coffee and cake.

Soon we will turn a bit more towards south, but no big detours; the first Nomadic Village of this year is starting in Cerkno/Slovenia in less than 3 weeks, and we are looking forward very much to meeting some of you there.
