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.
