The Nomadic Village
The Nomadic Village is a 2-week settlement in which nomadic artists’ mobile homes/ateliers form the structure of the Village. The center and townhall is the big blue bus and the Galeria Nowhere exhibition caravan.

Together we create an autonomous enviroment in which participants can freely experiment with new ways of working; it stimulates creativity and exchange, and attracts local people to observe and participate in the process.  At the end of the Village there is a public exhibition/show that invites a wider audience to appreciate the works produced during the Village.

The Nomadic Village is run by Captain Klaus (lead artist and founder) and tinski (directing artist) from On The Road Productions (ORP), Austria.
