We’re Moving!

Nova Earth Institute is partnering with Elemental Studios to create the Motovun Transformational Arts Centre in Motovun, Croatia. At the edge of a medieval hill town in the center of the Istrian peninsula, MTAC will be the new home for NEI, its initiatives, and several of its partners.


The  MTAC architectural program  is  set  to  include:  a gallery/movement  space  that  can seat  up  to  100,  a community kitchen  and  dining  room,  a  store selling  works  of  art  as  well  as  art  supplies,  admin  offices  for NEI,  an  arts library,  a  meeting  room  for  smaller  groups,  and  a  light  filled  top  floor  filled with  studio spaces  for  various visual  arts  with  a  focus  on  fine  metal,  glass,  and  new  media. 

MTAC  will  also  include  an  off-site  residency  hall that  will  house  visiting  artists  and  workshop participants. The  residency  hall  will  include  studio apartments  capable  of  housing  1-4  occupants  with two  dorm  rooms serving  up  to  8 occupants each  as  well  as  share  living  spaces.




Nova Earth Institute is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of NEI must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
