We are making the good life happen in the post-industrial economy.
Hidden away in a relaxed fishing village near Essaouira with access to world class waves, beaches and surf. This January to April, we are bringing together 12 people interested in working on entrepreneurial and creative opensource projects to live, co-work from, and explore Morocco together for one month at a time.
We want to offer people working for the common good an intentional break from y(our) routines and the space to drive meaningful projects forward, develop new skills and build new relationships. A month in the house is about going on a journey together to build a “better life” by collaborating on some inspiring projects with a supportive community of peers.
Doctors, hackers, artists, scientists, farmers, teachers, entrepreneurs and more. People working on projects for the common good. People going through life or career transitions asking how they can make the world better. It’s a community of people with deep experiences and skillsets needed to get ambitious projects off the ground
In each house participants cocreate a nurturing environment for innovators to be able to work on the projects that they love, while living and having fun with peers who have different perspectives and values. The participants consist of teams of Project leaders and Project collaborators. They are hosted in the house in a calm environment to think, learn and work together.
We will be staying in a charming, fully furnished Riadh a short walk from the beach, located near Sidi Kaouki.
This fully furnished, spacious riad boasts 400 sq.m. of living space, 6 bedrooms all with ensuite, a fully equipped kitchen, indoor pool & rooftop deck with ocean views.
The application deadline is January 15th 2017. You can apply by selecting one of the above projects you would like to work on and telling us a little bit about yourself. Have a project of your own? Submit a proposal on the platform. We will allocate spaces as soon as the right people show up, so do not leave it to the last minute!
