A festival by Nomadways and Kacalou – would you like to join? Let’s do it!
28-30 September 2018
Homade, Brivezac, France (see on the map)
Dear friend and artivist,
We are Nomadways and Kacalou; and we would like to invite you to join our first co-created festival in Brivezac, France at the end of the Summer! Créestival will bring people together to share, perform & create with their arts and skills. Over a weekend more than 50 artivists will facilitate workshops for each other, perform and experiment together. We would like to invite you to join our community by contributing to the Créestival!
Imagine a long weekend full of shared creativity and art: music, performing and embodied arts, visual art, clowning, games, workshops… and whatever else you would like to propose!
At the moment we would like to invite artists and volunteers to propose activities and what they would like to contribute to the event. The open invitation to register and attend will be published in early August.
How can you contribute?
-By sharing your art! – We would like to invite you to make a performance, show, concert and /or animate an art workshop up to 1.5 hours; and experience the creations by other artists for the rest of the weekend.
-By helping us run it! – We are a small team, so we will need your help. If you think you can help us with setting up workshops & shows spaces, garden, camping site, technical equipment, welcoming our guests, running and maintaining the place, cooking, making cocktails, promoting the festival around… please, let us know!
-Both! – You are an artist, and could also help us with the organisation? Wonderful!

Créestival will take place in Homade – Nomadways co-creation space in Brivezac, France. A place for nomads, artists, educators and social actors to come and play, learn, create and share. A place for you, for us to shape our world together! Find out more here.
7 rooms of 2-3 people for up to 20 awesome visitors in total
100m2 of movement space with a 7 meter heigh ceiling and an old cinema sound system
5 toilets, 2 powered by drinkable water, 2 dry toilets
1 shared kitchen, dining room, living room and library
4000m2 of garden full of walnut trees, apple trees, cherry trees, plum trees and fig trees
1 river a few meters away!
We have rooms for 20 people and a lovely garden for camping. The idea is to accommodate our artists and volunteers at Homade, but we will offer different options in the area if the house is fuller than we expected.
You will be invited to stay at Homade for free. However, since this festival is 100% self-initiated and funded, we will invite you to make a small donation according to your consideration.
There is a kitchen and everyone will be allowed to do collective or personal cooking. It is also possible that some local farmers and cooks will also have stands with delicious awesomeness at the venue (we are still arranging this).
All travel costs and arrangements are covered by you. This festival is not funded by any entity, therefore we are not able to cover your travel expenses.
What Créestival means to us?
It exists to explore and reveal all the possibilities of co-creation. It is open to anyone who would like to join a gang of creative and curious people who are interested in art as a mean of self-exploration, inclusion, expression, social change, respect, peace, love, care, curiosity, learning, freedom, improvisation and collectiveness.
What is Créestival’s purpose?
To give space and opportunity for different people to meet, experiment, learn and create together. For 3 days we will share a space, animate and experience creative moments proposed by each other. We will live, cook and eat together, as well as co-manage a festival of our own.
Openness, playfulness, peace, inclusion, freedom, respect, creativity, improvisation, flexibility, curiosity, welcoming proactivism, friendship, empathy, love.
