Since 2009 the Nomadic Village has been a 2 weeks annual settlement of Artists on the road. The nomadic artists’ mobile homes/ateliers form the structure of the Village around On The Road Productions’ Steyr-Ikarus bus, which acts as its townhall. In this autonomous enviroment 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.

In 2015 the Nomadic Village will become a swarm of people on the move for 4 months, travelling across several European countries and stopping along the way to establish 2 different Villages. At the end of each Village there is a public exhibition/show that invites a wider audience to appreciate the works produced during the Village.

[Artists on the road]
Artists, researchers, activists, hackers, those who intentionally displace themselves to seek encounters that not only influence their work but form it; those who work without borders and constantly respond to situations, places and people along their journey, those who have an autonomous working and living mobile setup

Nomadic Village UK 2012


The Nomadic Village UK 2012 was produced in collaboration with ISIS Arts (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) and supported by Durham County Arts Team. It welcomed nomadic artists from all over the world, whose practice is rooted in themes surrounding nomadism; those who intentionally displace themselves to seek encounters that not only influence their work but form it; artists who work without borders and constantly respond to situations, places and people along their journey. The Nomadic Village acts as a platform for artists working in this manner, ultimately creating a wider, more visible network for nomadic artists.
