  From the main website ...

    ← hackbase / CHT is a post-capitalist infrastructure research project in Canary Islands (Spain). The work is to practice, develop & document transitional tactics, tech, theory, and arts. Started in 2011 as a shared house, and since 2014 organizing temporary, experimental off-grid desert 🔗camps every winter season, that are *open to all*, using common-owned 🔗stuff. Your past training or perceived skills in any of these domains does not matter. The crew coordinates by commonly established protocols.

    Subscribe to the mailing 🔗list, or find the project on social media.

  Attend as crew !

Info! Including: costs, participation, dress-code, social code, apps to preload, and stuff to read.

→ Absolutely read the 🔗newcomers protocol !

→ Join crew via 🔗planning.

→ mail

→ Skip the 🔗idiots-guide.

COVID-19 report 🦠

Last Updated:

Borders are open since the start of July. Cheap flights have resumed. Situation is reasonably OK

→ Current COVID-19 status @ Canary Islands here:
    Fuerteventura: "46 active / 742 total / ~120.000 population"

→ If your personal/work/study life allows it, before they lockdown & curfew you, you can fly here.
    (also, consider canceling your rent & job).

→ Yes - CHT has a 10-day quarantine protocol:
    * We will support you during this time in an aux camp. 
    * Generally, we are quite strict/conservative regarding outside contact, meaning we:
        * mask & keep distance to others,
        * do minimum / remote supplies,
        * do not go out to party much / at all
    * Email for details.
    Spain is on lockdown due to COVID-19. Probably best to stay safe where you are. If you are already here, contact ASAP.

"""[ANNOUNCE] January-March coliving hackbase in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. 50€ flights from EU. All life+lab costs 100€/wk (~60€/wk reduced). Hack the planet! """

    Status Report

The project is now fully mobile (→ 🔗trucko, a VW LT2.8 van).
We have reached Fuerteventura in February 2020.

New activities are focusing on expanding the common infrastructure (→🔗stuff), developing new strategies for life+work out of the mainstream, encouraging the spread and consolidation of similar efforts, and expanding the project to other islands of the 🔗canarias.

___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  

Previous camps were all in the island of Lanzarote, Canary Islands, lastly:
    * 🔗season7-A (CHT7A: 2019/10-12)
    * 🔗season6-C (CHT6C: 2019/6-7)
    * 🔗season6-A (CHT6A+CHT6B: 2018/11-2019/3)
For further back, see 🔗camps.


(DONE) JAN 4-15: Re-locate main project storage
    Is currently in Mancha Blanca (Lanzarote) but needs to move.
    Deadline is Jan 15!
    Needed storage space: ~10m3 (~2 ISO pallets). All boxed up. Asking local connections for house or land storage options. Will not rent anything for money.

(DONE) JAN 15-MARCH: Ferry the van to the island of Fuerteventura

    This costs ~20€ + 20€ per person
    Once we're in Fuerteventura, everything is possible ... nobody was ever there! ...

    Expect lots of exploration, and trying to meet new people: Locals (Spanish/Canarian) & the international "surfer" crowd.
    Will probably set a few van-supported camps, and organize some public events.
    Will definitely go around by bikes, buying ~3 new ones.

(DONE) Find a place to keep the van while we are not here

    We will need to meet somebody and ask them.
    Just leaving the van somewhere is possible, but not desirable.

UPDATE: We agreed on a van-store place with new local friends.

(CURRENTLY) MARCH-INDEFINITE: Shelter in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic

    The Spanish government has enforced a strict lockdown, that ended in mid-May.
    The flights have restarted July 1st.
    Our situation here is pretty great.
    We are open for new crew, under specific conditions.
    We keep maintaining ~1-month supplies, and are embedded within the local community of the tiny village (<10 constant inhabitants, ~30 houses) where we're sheltering.

✈✈✈ Fly In ✈✈✈

Updated 2020-10-23
General info about flight routes → 🔗flying-in.

Borders are open since the start of July & cheap flights have resumed.

Again: It seems this could be a good time to come here, before you get curfewed in mainland EU.

    Spain is on lockdown due to COVID-19. Probably best to stay safe where you are. If you are already here, contact ASAP.
