NAVEL is looking for Collective Residents of all ages (18+) and disciplines with practices that imagine, experiment and actualize alternatives to the status quo. We are looking for process-oriented artists, activists, writers, designers, programmers, hackers, dancers, body workers, musicians, academics, scientists, educators, thinkers, cultural practitioners, community leaders and organizers, as well as those who don't fit neatly into these categories, who could benefit from being part of an insightful, driven and caring collective and from the use of the NAVEL space, its resources, equipment, and network. In pursuit of a more just, creative, and collaborative world, we are looking for folks who seek to shift from a place of individualism to community-centeredness, and are eager to make kin, and explore transformative ways of being, playing, experimenting, working and taking action together.
