Stuck finding that perfect gift this year? We near the end of 2021 and the time for the gift-giving season is upon us. After struggling with the enormous ups and downs of the last 2 years, the creative juices may just feel empty when trying to think of what to give your special people.
I truly believe in what we do here at Coconat, offering a place in the countryside where people from all walks of life can sit down to focus on their work and projects. Individuals can show up and instantly plug into the place and culture here, to get their head in the game.
What is a Workation?
Space to focus, structured days (including breaks), talk over ideas with new perspectives, breathe some fresh air in the forests, animal encounters, a quick swim, working in a hammock, chill in the library with piles of books you brought with…the list goes on and on… After nearly 5 years, Coconat is ready to host most.
So, who needs a workation the most?
Is your friend a…
PHD Student – They are trying to wrap their head around a proposal to enter on a years long journey cracking a new code in their field. – or – They just need to finish that last revision, after over a year of revisions, they need to breathe life back into what they know is important work. They want to get their work publisher ready. Help them join the many an academic who include Coconat as a part of the way.
Author – Oh the books that have been worked on here at Coconat. Join the Coconat book club. Story-telling is easy done here, whether you need to lick yourswelf away in your room for days on end, only coming out for a freshly prepared meal and COFFEE, or you rather set up shop outside in the open air, you will find the spot.
Start-up – Find a classic coworking culture, where people are genuinely curious and supportive of each-other. Pitch an idea, offer or take part in a skill share, soon you can even develop a prototype in our Coco-lab. No matter the type of business, a few days away and focused on your dream is always gonna be a blessing.
Filmmaker – This region is ripe with filmmaking talent, so a filmmaker will never feel alone here. Our Coconat Film Residents* are here 20 weeks in the year, our editing suite is up for use, regular meetings – whether a Stammtisch or mastermind – are held where industry insiders give support and advice to each others projects. Heck, we should have our own Netflix category soon!
Podcaster – Where storytellers and the digitally literate hang out, the podcaster is ever near. Develop your story plan for the coming year, record in our developing podcast room, edit in our editing suite, record the sounds of nature in the middle of the forest – whatever your subject, you will find your place in or around Klein Glien.
Fashion Designer – What is that you say? Yeah, we said it – Fashion designers welcome soon! With the opening of the Coco-lab, fashion designers can work in our centuries old field-stone barn at one of the machines. There are always a few fashionistas about, and always people keen to see some physical creative works!
Game Developer – Well, who can best work in a digital manner other than a game developer? Plus they may even time their stay with our coming gamer’s retreat, The Rabbit, check it out this spring.
Music Producer – Can’t say what it is about the place, but music is always happening. In the library the digital prowess of which we speak is about a different kind of key – and our ivories are tickled on a regular basis. Improvised studios have popped up all over the Coconat premises, and there are some secret places with very large keys which might just elevate your next project!
CEO/Director – Maybe it is time to take your organization to another level, to develop a new focus, to get back in touch with purpose. Coconat is not shy from hosting leaders of organizations and companies big and small.
You! Well, if you don’t see yourself listed about, but still what to check it out – you know there is nothing stopping you from giving yourself the gift of time and space to focus on what you have been wanting to work on – New year’s resolutions are just after Christmas you know? 🙂
