Private Islands Where Creatives Can Stay On For Free To Work On Their Ideas
By Dorothy Tan, 14 Mar 2014
Are you a creative who is working on your next big idea and is in need of a quiet place to focus on turning it into reality? If so, you may want to consider signing up for the “Ideas Island” project.
The brainchild of business creativity author and speaker Fredrik Härén, the project allows creatives to stay on one of his three private islands for free while developing their ideas.
This unusual and generous initiative is a way for Härén to “give back to the world” and to “encourage creativity”—one of the island is situated in the Philippines while the other two are found near Stockholm, Sweden.
At the time of writing, the Palawan island is closed temporarily due to the damage wrecked by super-typhoon Yolanda—however, the Swedish islands of Vifärnaholme and Svanholmen are still available as incubators for ideas.
To secure a stay on one of these Ideas Islands, answer a few simple questions about your work and motivations—while lodgers are typically asked to donate some money to charity in exchange for the experience, creatives with financial constraints would also be able to stay for nothing.
