This category lists nomadbases and websites about nomadbases. Pages about concepts and models can be found in the category nomadism.

A nomad base is a shared living space where all inhabitants can feel like hosts or in other words: 'at home'. It is a place where the inhabitants - how temporary they may stay - feel at home, do their 'thing' and can learn and share at the same time with the other people who live there. A shared culture of participation in common activities (household and events for example) as well as mutual care among inhabitants and visitors are highly necessary for these spaces to remain sustainable.

The values of sustainability, sharing and openness are central. A nomad base does not exist for the sake of financial profit.

A nomad base can be a shared living space (like a house, an eco-village or intentional communities) rented, owned or squatted by one or more individuals who decide to also share this space with nomads. It could also be a temporary space on a temporary location like some piece of (squatted) land. Each location might have their own specific culture, aspiration, focus, terms of living, minimum or maximum length of stay, intentions, and so on.

Concept

What is a nomad base?

This article needs some cleaning, because the following definitions need to be merged
  • A: A nomadbase is a communal living space, whose main purpose is to give long-term travellers the opportunity to have a place they can call home for free and without long-term obligations, where they come to (and leave) whenever and as often as they want. It is a place where they are not guests, but flatmates, no matter how long they stay. As a side effect of this, it furthermore accomplishes to connect long-term travellers amongst each others and creates a space where it is also easy for less-travelled people to meet and connect with each other.
  • B: A nomad base is a shared living space where all inhabitants can feel like hosts or in other words: 'at home'. It is a place where the inhabitants - how temporary they may stay - feel at home, do their 'thing' and can learn and share at the same time with the other people who live there. A shared culture of participation in common activities (household and events for example) as well as mutual care among inhabitants and visitors are highly necessary for these spaces to remain sustainable.
  • C: A nomad base can be a shared living space (like a house, an eco-village or intentional community) rented, owned or squatted by one or more individuals who decide to also share this space with nomads. It could also be a temporary space on a temporary location like some piece of (squatted) land. Each location might have their own specific culture, aspiration, focus, terms of living, minimum or maximum length of stay, intentions, and so on.
  • D: A nomadbase can be a house, a wwoofing farm, a community. Nomads can contact the base coordinator to enquire about the possibility to stay at the base. The base coordinator can change the information about availability and description of the base.

Characteristics

What are characteristics that 'define' a nomadbase? What does a place needs to have to be labelled as such?

The values of sustainable sustainability, sharing and openness are central. A nomad base does not exist for the sake of financial profit.

  • A base can have goals, like rooftop gardening for example. See Casa Robino.
  • A base have tasks, this includes cooking, dishes, shopping, cleaning. It can also include bike maintenance, gardening, ... For some bases it can be more elaborated, such as writing a little story on the base blog.
  • A base can have properties like bikes for example.
  • Open for nomads
  • Shared living?

The limits of nomad bases

See the discussion page on Sharewiki for brainstorming

Manifesto

Work is being done on a manifest that can be publicised in various cities through hospitality exchange networks and forums, inspiring and inviting other "houses" to join a nomad-base network or inspire other individuals that are already using their houses as nomad bases to connect with each other.

The intention of this manifesto is not to set any specific rules or definitions of what a nomad base should be, but describe certain potential properties/tendencies/intentions of nomadic bases, the kind of dynamics likely to develop in such bases, etc.

See The Mobile Manifesto

Nomadbase Network

A Nomadbase-network would be a network of nomads and nomadbases: a network of nomads, long term travelers, skillsurfers, etc, with places and bases that are open for shared living. See also Nomadbase-Network and Models_of_Nomadic_Networks.

Nomadbases could also stay in touch with each other, exchange on ideas, processes and experiences.

How to reach potential new bases?

  • Go and meet them. Personal contact is most important.
  • Nomadbase hunt: Keep your eyes open when you're travelling, go and check potential places. You (and any other nomad) go to a city without known nomadbase and try to find open places/people.
  • Recycle the house of grandma.
  • For each profile: List of places you like. Get notification when new nomad base is being created there.
  • Some communities with good potential look for members on mainstream search tools (Germany: WG-gesucht). We may find some interesting things there.
  • Collect good occasions of flats in a wiki, where people that hear of a good deal but cannot take it can make it known to those that are looking.
  • list the flat-finding ressources per city.

Conference

There might be many nomad-bases around the world, though these are not so much connected with each other yet. To help creating a network of these spaces, the website nomadbase.org was started January 2009. To make new connections between houses, spaces and nomadic travelers, a conference was taking place in Berlin from 20 of November of 2009 to 2nd of December: SHE goes MAD.

There is a call for a possible next Nomadbase network meeting.
